Tuesday Poem: ‘Of Ribbon’ by A.J. Huffman

A. J. Huffman

Of Ribbon

satin
strips
tied
into
bows
rainbowed
waves catching
breath of wind
genderized
streamers
for hair

This poem kicks off the recent Poetry Special in Blue Five Notebook, along with art by French painter Francis Denis (which I’m sharing here too as I love the vibrancy of his work) and follows the theme at the Tuesday Poem hub this week (Wild Daisies by Bub Bridger, posted by Bel Hawkins) — that sometimes the simplest poems say paint such a clear image and say quite a lot.
