30 Day Poetry Challenge: Day 25

Day 25- Write a poem that includes all of the following words: pistachio, ink, pebble, weather, varnish.


I shall ink my skin with the marks of ten years,
Every storm that has rained upon me shall be remembered,
Every bruise from a pebble thrown shall remain.
I shall write the words upon my skin to
Display them whenever I shall need.
I shall draw upon myself in all colors,
Maroon and the deep blue of the ocean,
Pistachio yellow-green and black and white and all
Colors in between.
I shall varnish it all
So as not to forget
The storms that I have weathered.
