——–

Much is proffered buying, selling —

Various types clothing, 

Makeup, perfume, jewelry, and scarves.

——-

If the price’s too rich, 

We’ll window shop, 

Try on Channel, Dior, anyways. 

——-

Perhaps we’ll wait until they’re —

Sales in stores, 

We can afford buying from.

——–

Buy what we love quality and —

Better priced, classic —

Natural fabrics, Aubrey Hepburn styles. 

—–

Maybe we’ll test perfumes floral, 

On papers, wrists, 

Apply thirty facial highlighters glimmering.

—–

Perhaps we’ll find the right —

Shade, skintone for —

Foundation that’s wonderful, covers perfectly. 

——

Maybe we’ll smother ourselves in —

Silk scarves with —

Rainbow colours; every size, shape. 

—-

Trying on high heels our —

Legs appearing long, 

Gorgeous, aching feet all night. 

—–

What about something delicate, silken —

To sleep in;

Matching five-inch Jimmy Choos. 

—–

Silk blue sweaters, wool coats, 

Little black dresses —

Hugging curves; cotton-stretch v-necks,

——-

Knee-high leather boots winter’s —

Calling; gold sandals —

For summer’s heat, beach vacation. 

——

Rose-gold necklaces polished, tangled, 

Pearls rings gleaming; 

Nail polish, pink blush, lipsticks —

—-

Matte or moisturizing, sparkling, holographed. 

Moisturizer, anti-aging —

Serums with Retinol, Vitamin whatever. 

—–

How about we stop driving —

Home; explore the —

Market, pet the dogs, purchase —

—–

Crisp baby carrots, fresh corn.

Peaches and cherries; 

Blushing nectarines, just-picked raspberries. 

—–

Homemade wine, high alcohol content —

Breath in reds, 

Touch of tartness, sweet white —

—-

Rieslings; homemade tequila or moonshine, 

Slushy strawberry margaritas. 

Apple-pies warm, mince-meat pie —

—–

For Dad; with shortbread that —

Melts slowly on,

Our tongue, gourmet chocolate gelato. 

—–

Dog treats for ‘good dogs,’ 

Organic peanut butter —

Grandma’s homemade raspberry jelly too. 

——

How about honey straight from —

Bee hives dripping, 

Into hot tea at night.

——-

They’re various heavenly delights,

But only so —

Much money in our pockets.

    Mandibelle16, You are one of my friends on Facebook and I just saw that you are a writer, like me, and obviously like fantasy and Ruby slippers! I didn’t even realize you were also on WordPress too! I am now following you! My husband is from Canada and my grandparents are too! K D Dowdall.

      Hi K.D. That’s awesome I’m so glad to meet you and always excited to meet Canadian bloggers. I haven’t meant very many in the 6 years I’ve been blogging. Nice to hear you have Canadian connections.
      Haha “red high heels” – Kelly pickler country song from a while back. I never even thought of the ruby slippers thing but you could be right. Have a good night!
