can’t live without scars

Read more quadrilles (44 word poem) on “scars” at dVerse Poets pub.


scars are marks

of prized memories,

show ‘n tell skin events

have made us who we are;

our lifetime misadventures of

bicycle stunts, high climbing feats

fake sword fights, rake encounters of

the worst kind, dull slips of sharp blades,

removal of warts, crazy cow kicks, and birthing.

    Prized memories, I like that though there are some spills and falls I would rather forget. Thanks for joining us Lynn. Happy weekend.

    Oh yes, all those things – and can in time become good reminders.

    Scars are beautiful, if they tell of a lesson learned

    I liked the phrase, “show ‘n tell skin events”.

    LOVE this, lynn.
    “show ‘n tell skin events”
    and “dull slips of sharp blades”

    Just wonderful.
