Wearing Earrings

Every day, when I get dressed, No matter how I’m feeling, I choose the clothes that, comfort-wise, I find the most appealing. I may not see another soul, (My husband, though, excluded) Yet for my day to rock and roll, I would be quite deluded… If nothing dangled near my face, For earrings are required And every morning I embrace A pair that I’ve acquired. Some favorites tend to reappear But since I have so many, You’d never glance at either ear To find me without any. My husband wonders why do I Insist on this tradition. My answer, given with a sigh, Might spark some recognition. It cheers me up to add a bit Of charm to my reflection; Those earrings also benefit, Diverting close inspection.

"It cheers me up to add a bit Of charm to my reflection;" Love this for you. I never wear them.

I never ever understood that attraction of hanging jewellery on one's self as that is like a neon target in a fight, but now am I to understand that it makes you less likely to want to fight? Enjoyed your well-written poem! Aloha!

The habit also helps you to be ready on other mornings when you face civilization. I forget to out on jewelry.

A fine, fun, endearing write, Ilene. I wear a peridot in my left ear. It was one of Deborah's sets which didn't get sold, so I decided I would wear it in memory of her. Some may think it odd; I don't care what they think!
