Thanks to Michael of MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie for hosting August 26, 2017 Tale Weaver prompt on shopping.
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.
