Material Matters

Material Matters
Form: Raven’s Rovi Sonnet 15
Theme: Love
Subject: The Dress

A chaos flows in taffeta and silk
The fabric cascading on chairs and floor
In the sweetened hues of honey and milk
As her eyes gaze on this design and that
An off the shoulder number, or a veil
Would her hair be better under a hat
How far behind should the flowing train trail
A satin bodice instead of the silk
And out comes another ivory bale
The choices flow around where she is sat
And still she knows there will be so much more
Will she ever decide before the day
As deep in her heart she can hear him say
‘I will just see you, my girl, anyway
