Get Listed

Ed Pilolla  give us a list for the  Get Listed poem.  Here is his list  -we had to pick at least three words.  I highlighted mine.   Thanks Ed-I enjoyed this challenge~





MAKEOVER


Sunlight blushes sits by me
She's late---
paint lesson rearranged
due to gray funeral
she splashes mauve at me with
 her scarlet fingernails
I grin and murmur
she teases me---about my silver curls
fluttering wing of a magpie waves to us
cold breeze rustles across me
she cast her long liquid fingers 
warming me
trenches of life pull at her
must draw the final curtains of day
she encourages me to follow
into dark ocean's playground
I shiver in pewter depths
she winks
tomorrow at noon
I'll highlight your silver curls  Rose Gold
an audience of chirping will cheer us
she teases me
I'll hide my tendrils under cloudy hat
I'll toss it on top of Bald Mountain 
you'll see my hair spill out
see you at noon

  7. I love, love, love your poem. I know right where this picture was taken. I am familiar with the Camden area as we have family that live there. It is such a pretty place.
