Extreme Makeover

I shall skip the prose
Sun gives no apology
For the dark of night

Prompt at dVerse is the Mardi gras and juxtaposition from feasting in all its merriment to the somber solemnity of Ash Wednesday. Suggested is a haibun, but I decided on just the haiku.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    The sun should never apologize for anything. Except maybe what he did to my thighs when I was in high school.

  7. What your poem signifies for me, within the context of this prompt, is the peace one might have in just being who she is, not having to justify her nature or overcompensate for a force of ignorance in her midst. I celebrate this poem, as it speaks to an integrity within us all that must be exercised.
