like a rambling haiku
by lower case alphabet afficiando
rita hayworth shoulder bed
bad taste clothing - fashion
over forty- fashion over
love fuzzy heart
this is your life:
man in red plaid
40 year old lifestyle blog
40 year old style blog
blogs for women over 40
This, being the most recent
the cha cha line of words + phrases
of how people found me
here on the web.
This blog. My life.
How succinct and telling-
a man, a plaid, and love.
And piled on, my all aged obsession
with being over 40.
Forty, forty. Over
and forty. The litany
forty-forty-forty- it sounds a bit like a train
gearing up for a hill. Over
and forty, forty, forty.
Are we yet
over the hill? I feel
Steely and determined to climb.
This search, so very much me-
the keyword assertions so baldly bold
with my gaseous ambitions
tethered to the gravity of real life;
on the Life Quixotic
Now playing the visionary version
a virtual silver screen
starring this girl
cast as a lovable but zany,
madcap spinster, doing her turn
as the Latina Lucille Ball
meets Rita Hayworth meets
a handsome stranger.
And there you are, man in red plaid.
There you are.
Thank you all for your kind comments and messages. I feel so fortunate to have stumbled onto such an amazing community. I felt isolated and fearful, and the positive messages are so touching and encouraging. Thank you.
