I'm sure you've all heard the expression "clothes make the man". Well, today, the clothes make the poem, or at least contribute significantly to it!
What I want you to do is to write a poem in which clothes play a significant part. Here are just a few ideas: a wedding dress, a military uniform, a favorite pair of shoes, an item of clothing that was a gift, or something that someone else wore that moved you in some way.
What about little girls playing dress-up? Rebel rebel, did you tear your dress? Or maybe you wore blue velvet?
Now, to be clear, I want more than a fleeting mention of something worn; it needs to be important to the poem. It can be something you wore or would like to wear. It can be something worn by someone else; someone you know, or a complete stranger who captivated you by their appearance. You could also write about someone whose attire was so odd or unusual that it made you notice.
Some clothing is ceremonial in nature, or identifies the wearer as a member of a certain group or tribe.
Now, Catblossom would like to come in with the LARGE PRINT. This must be a NEW poem written especially for this challenge. No re-posts. The poem must have some item of clothing as an important component, not just something mentioned in passing. If Catblossom feels that anyone linking has not made an honest effort to do the challenge as laid out, she will remove it. It's a specific challenge, not a "prompt", not a loose suggestion.
Feel free to use any of the images I have used here, or something of your own, or none.
Have fun, link up, and I will be around to read all of your poems!
