POPO2022 day 20 — swans and gold-haired woman

card 20 swans and gold haired woman resized

one fell night a swan
princess dreams herself human
gold plaits in soft garb

one fell night a swan
flies herself high, perches in
tall tower window

dreams herself human
waits for her sweet prince’ kiss; his
lips soft as velvet

gold plaits in soft garb
feathers plucked in bare envy
imprisons herself

      Thank you, Paula. Last year I wrote all slimverse, this year they are all troiku. Glad you have been enjoying them. POPO is a lot of fun. Something you might want to take part in next year 🙂
