Freckles

Freckles

Freckles

Inconsistent pigments
arbitrary, unpredictable
a little like history
fickle, a little lyrical
and, perhaps, just dots
but more like personality
on the outside
too much within just seeped
through as little splots
that pepper the world
to show them you’ve got
more than that which
is expected from within-

mood, manner, attitude,
intelligence, direction –

all of that which rest in
little spots that pirouette
on your skin.

Hey there, folks. Hope your week is going well and, if it isn’t, remember that we’re halfway there.  Above is a poem I wrote in ode to those little tiny dots that people sometimes have peppered on their skin. Got a really great friend of mine who we always go back and forth about them and, well, they’ve kind of grown on me a bit. Enough to write about them, I guess? So, to all those who know someone or who have them, there’s a little something for you that I hope brings a smile.

 

As always, here’s to hoping your day flies right on by and that you’ve got something cold and on the rocks waiting for you when you get home tonight.
