Material



Material she wears, covered in gold, satin, silk, she loves the earth.

What else?

Fibers quilted, designs infinitum, unique patterns, crisscross, up down

Left right, she steps out in chic today so fierce yet so gentle; stop and stare

They all, woven tapestry colors abound, in broad daylight, astounding

Rainbows jealous of her, she represents material strength in fashion, justice creative.

Defending her faith with that dress, carving her religion with those heels.

Material to death, onward boldly in beauty.

About this poem

A woman steps out fashionable so I thought I would describe my feelings about it.
