A poem I wrote about . . . nail decals

Since it’s National Poem in Your Pocket Day it seemed fitting to post a poem on the blog today.

Initially I was considering posting about nail decals (again) or a poem as I had not remembered the date for Poem in Your Pocket Day.

My cheeky fellow bloggers Andi and Nicole suggested I write a poem about nail decals. Which I was loathe to do. Until I remembered that I like writing poems about, well, stuff.

So I did.

Here’s the poem:

Plaid Nail Decals


I painted my nails plaid

three weeks ago


If by “paint” you mean

applied tiny plaid strips to each nail


It all started to chip away a week ago


Only after did anyone notice

to tell me

how pretty it was
