Gender-neutral, or: Girly

A Golda

Programmed
by our
society,
her
favored color 
is pink

But why?

'Twas
Mamie
 Eisenhower
who changed the way
folks think.

#TankaTuesday

The above ‘Golda’ was written for Colleen M. Chesebro’s ‘Tanka Tuesday’ prompt: Poets were prompted to write syllabic poems inspired by a color of their choice. I chose the color ‘pink’.

This ‘Golda’ poem was written for Murisopsis’ Poetry Scavenger Hunt.


Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

      BTW, please feel free to call me ‘David’. That is my first name. ‘ben’ simply means ‘son of’ in Hebrew. I created this blog in my father’s memory – hence my pen name.

      I know it’s confusing because ‘Ben’ is also a name in English. Sorry about that!

      Much love,
      David
