Texture – Daily Prompt “Lessons in Texture”



Lessons in texture  

Blue and crackling, nylon in the dark

Clinging and scratching

And giving off sparks

Too-hot sticky or freezing

This is dreadful design

Lessons in Science- The Nightie, aged 5

Thorns and thistles, wool against skin

This stuff is all prickly!

“Show some thanks, it’s a gift

It took time to make

And there’s love in each stich.”

Learning love hurts – The Jumper, aged six

Scraping and burning, road against limb

“*!@$ing hell and @!*$”or

“Dear me, what a sting”

It’s a bed of black diamonds

When you surf it, full weight

Lessons in tarmac – aged twenty eight
