my cotton sheets

this is actually a rondolet, a shortened form of rondeau, which does not have its own category on p.s.


My cotton sheets
Like a blue ocean on my bed
My cotton sheets
Where you and I used to retreat
Before I went off of my meds,
Before your blood spattered them red
My cotton sheets

did you get inspired yet for the church poem? I googled a bunch of church pictures by the sea and it just got me more confused. Did you know there is an actual RELIGIon called Church by the Sea??

Susan....it looks like cotton almost ruled the day.. ha ha. Very beautiful rondeau. It seems like an emotional release for whomever the owner of the cotton sheets were. The title looks solid. I saw you were looking for help on the title earlier....I like it bc it is a simple poignant write. Congrats on this golden medal win!! Hugs, Gwendolen

Ha, ha! You are psycho. You are joking, right? I love cotton sheets, but they gotta be clean. Title it 'Bloody Sheets.'

This is a nicely written Rondeau. So lovely. Why do you want to change the title? It is ok with me. Have a wonderful day, susan
