#June1-30Challenge Day 14:

Day 14 Fourteen Line Poem
June 14, 1578. Fourteen-year-old William Shakespeare wrote his first sonnet.
Actually, I made that up. Shakespeare really was 14 in 1578, and he did write sonnets. But no one knows when he wrote his first sonnet. Today may be the day you write your first sonnet, though.
Write a poem of at least fourteen lines. You may want to try writing a sonnet, but any fourteen line poem will do.

In Praise of Scarves

Scarves how I love thee, in so many ways!
Pink, green, and purple elephant square, souvenir of my youth.
Mom’s Hermes keepsake, Paris 195?
Fiorucci dot, staple of my Otis student years.
Hand dyed, hand loomed ikat, you have a mate in Providence.
3.1 Phillip Lim BOOM! Bigger than imagined, now a tunic.
Oaxaca rebozo, the señora wrapped my cabeza traditional style.
Gold and wine paisley, from Kim, from India.
Hand painted silk from Mercedes — I miss you, girl.
Dotted Maiwa, I hear the siren call of Vancouver, BC.
Mod dot by Bill Blass, best go-to graphic square.
Moschino Olive Oyl, smaller than I dreamed, big ideas planned.
Bella’s striped rainbow, gone missing all winter, recently found.
Scarves, you always fit, no matter what my size.

(Note: first two scarves are missing from the photo — couldn’t locate)
