Poetry Assignment: Day 3
Today our assignment is to write a free-form verse with the prompt ‘Skin’. I found this so hard to do. I usually love writing free-form verse, rhyming or not it doesn’t matter, but having this one word as the key just stumped me.
I think this one has taken me as long to write as the four verse Haiku I composed on Monday 🙂
Skin, that living breathing magical suit of armour within which the real self can hide
The colour doesn’t matter, it’s only a façade – a shop window, the real goods are inside
The heart, the soul, the mind – these are the treasures the skin protects
The innermost treasures that make each of us unique
