Fancy in Velvet #dailypost #poetry #Wish


Collectible-Porcelain-Doll-Red-Velvet-And-Gold

 

Today is the day

I have been promised

anything

for twenty-four hours

I have spent many nights

dreaming

and I have finally decided

down to the last bow

what I would wear, where I would go

The dress is laid out

red, velvety and lacy

with a white furry bonnet

and soft wool gloves

black patent leather shoes

and just a dab of pink lipstick

I swirl about in the mirror

catching my reflection

giddy as a little girl

“Miss it is time to go…”

I hear the porter call up the stairs

I make a grand entrance on 100 marble steps down to the foyer

A carriage of four awaits

to carry me to an elegant spot for high tea

and there they are my friends

perched on top of satin pillow seats

their hands perfectly folded

they would gasp and smile

but each had a painted doll face

they couldn’t partake in this part of the dream

they could watch as I daintily took a silver fork

each morsel better than the last

and finally there it was

a cake with one shining candle

“blow it out, make a wish…”

I had already gotten it

“I want to be real for a day…”

I sighed, “Tomorrow,  it would be wonderful if I didn’t have to go back to being a doll…”

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
