NaPoWriMo 2012 day 17

stand, pose, pout
consider yourself and marvel
at just how pretty you are
6 years old and pleased as punch
with what you see
in every reflection
only child
but self-appointed twin
keeps you company
perfect tandem
laugh and grin
loud delight
at such a picture
of perfection
beckon me to let loose
the restraint of years
self-consciousness carefully
crafted to keep preening
at bay

  1. Such innocence in childhood that so many love to cripple, and yet we are adults for much longer than we are children. I can only imagine how much more beautiful you'd be if you took to preening, but we prefer organic, no? :)
