I'm Made of ...
a bit of vice
(unfortunately not all that's nice)
and yes, the occasional dash of pettiness
childhood summers of red clover, horses,
hammocks and kittens
six sweet babes, some grown and flown,
a mother's earnest prayers
t-shirts and jeans, a few forgotten dreams,
a better understanding of sexiness
rooted in yesteryears and wisdom gleaned
a smile, once shy,
painted frosted sugar plum.

A fun prompt - one I'm afraid to dig into too much :) "Imaginary Garden of Real Toads - Sunday Mini Challenge - What I'm Made of ..."
These red clovers always remind me of childhood - they grew in our hayfield and we would pick them and pluck them - and they were edible - during the hot summer days when we weren't allowed in the house we sat in the shade beneath the trees or on the porch - boredom wasn't something my parent's cared about :)
my favorite lipstick is "sugar plum" and I've always been addicted to frosted lipgloss - I'm a product of the '80's ... but I don't sport great big hair anymore :)
