DRAGONFLY: An Original Acrostic

I've been blogging "light" lately. I've had lots of things to do. Recently, I got a ton of wonderful children's books for a baby shower that my daughter Sara and I are going to on Sunday. Wednesday evening, my husband and I celebrated his birthday with Sara and her fiance. (We had Beijing duck, maki, tempura.) I went shopping and found a beautiful pink suit for my mother to wear to Sara's wedding. Yesterday, I picked up my mother-of-the-the bride dress. I also went to the bridal shop with my daughter last night when she got her gown "bustled." Later, Sara came to my house for dinner.

Here's the dress I'm wearing to Sara's wedding.
I got it in purple.
Here are the shoes I got at Macy's on sale recently.
I hope I can walk down the aisle
in them without spraining an ankle
or falling on my face!

I haven't had much time for writing poetry book reviews or extensive posts about poetry--so here is another poem from my unpublished collection Spring into Words: A Season in Acrostics:

Down here in the pond, I’ve waited for months…years,
Remained a nymph.
At last the season has come for me to
Grow wings, to shed the shell of childhood.
Onward and upward!
Now I’m ready to emerge
From my watery world, to
Look to the future…the blue sky above, to leave all my
Yesterdays behind.

At Blue Rose Girls, I having a poem by Jenny Joseph entitled WARNING--which begins: When I am an old woman I shall wear purple.
The Poetry Friday Roundup is over at The Cazzy Files.
