Poet's Notes

This is all true! I picked the poncho to lift my spirits on those greyest of days, and deliberately paired it with Periwinkle to don the most fabulous colours of the sky together, sun set, sun rise

Rainbow Coloured Camouflage

I get so excited
When the sky is grey
And the clouds hang low
When rain is falling
And the puddles grow;
For I just can't wait
To wear my fuschia poncho!
Don my periwinkle sandals
And away I go.
I forget about my age
Prancing to and fro;
Giddy like a child
In my rainbow camo.
