Music Prompt #11: Miranda Lambert “Pink Sun Glasses” #musicchallenge #music #amwriting

A dreamy aura of an arabesque
Feeling positive today
Clutching my skirt like an expert
Loop in a granny knot as I sway

Admire the pistil and stamen
Wearing my pink sunglasses
Like an expert clutching my skirt
Measure of luck as it arises

To reverse the bad vibes I might have
Simmer hope as I dawdle
Clutching my skirt like an expert
I can be contented and blissful*

  1. thanks for playing the wordle this week 🙂

    interesting use of the words, clever and fun too – and a wonderful choice of poetic form – it makes this sound like a reply in lyric form to a conversation, or a continuation of sorts of the song.

  2. Haha this is a great take I can relate, walking around Vegas with my university friends pulling my tiny jean skirt down all day b/c I didn’t size up. Loved that skirt though, despite its tendency to need pulling down. I think they must for everybody, I don’t see how they could not? I think if you put little shorts under them that would help the comfort level and not being exposed as well.

    Anyways I loved that you repeated that line with the link sunglasses theme and beat type of poem. It made me think she’s is do “blissful” as you say wearing these dreamy glasses that even if the skirt went up, there’s a point where she would just be like “meh” who cares.

    Thanks for participating Lady Lee another song coming this Friday. What I have to think on still 🙂
