16.03.22: dVerse Hats

It and I

My favourite hat smelled of quiet sun,
but it is past tense now.

It pains me to say
that a gust caught it on the lake,

and it floated off to a nether realm.
It and I shall never go

picking strawberries in Wexford
nor blackberrying like Sylvia did.

      1. Ha ha. I think she did her belt up too tight. She has probably got a strangulated hernia.

    1. So does Mr M. He even has a proper Panama hat, which doesn’t really come from Panama. They’re from Equador, I think, although he bought his in Colombia… because we haven’t been to Equador. Yet.

      1. 👍 Well done, Mr M. I’ve got one of those squishy panamas that you can stuff into a bag and it springs back into shape.😂

        1. That’s the one. If it doesn’t spring back, it’s not real.

  3. I think this picture enhances the poem that’s already so loaded with beauty. What a fun poem. I hope you didn’t miss it too much after it flew away from you. Hats are funny that way. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I don’t seem to be attached to hats, Selma. No pun intended, but there it is nevertheless.
