Lips Glossy

Lips
Glossy
Pink-blushed cheeks
Being woman
With the long curly lashes of a doll.
Wordle: random words
Wordle inspiration from Big Tent Poetry, a wonderful place!

I only used two words of from the inspiration this week, but I also tried a new form called the tectractys. Below is an excerpt from The Poetry Wagon, where I learned about this form:

**A tetractys is a complete thought written in 20 syllables.
1st line 1 syllable
2nd line 2
3rd line 3
4th line 4
5th line 10

Thanks Amanda for telling me about The Poetry Wagon and this new-to-me form!
