Royally Coiffed

Woke up early and watched the royal wedding.  Fascinating hats.  I couldn’t help but wonder if they had them duct taped on?

rainbow colored
pomp and
circumstantial evidentiary
all above our heads
bobbing and weaving
fiduciary millinery
indigo and rose
white and yellow
field of colour
cheerfully waving
staving off the aftermath
is adding up the cost
but just for now
for a few moments all display
the nay-sayers say
how can she, who is she
how dare she
is my bow straight
feathered preening
slant careening into
eyeglass of neighbor
scheming to be seen
necks craning, straining
for a view of two
but more important
who is wearing what
with who

      lol – google royal wedding hats….it’s a hoot. Some were quite attractive but some…oh my!

      I evidently fell asleep too early last night and so woke way before I should have this morning (before 4 a.m.) Going to be a long day. I did have scone with my chai latte in honor 🙂

    Those were some hats with a mighty high fiction quotient; love this take of yours on the royal fashion and our unending obsession with “who is wearing what/ with who.”

      You have to admire the courage of some of these ladies and yet there seems a little bit of “The Emperors New Clothes” involved. High fashion indeed 🙂

    My London friend, when asked what she did re the royal wedding: Cleaned her stove and went grocery shopping.

      I imagine that most people just went about their normal day – just like here 🙂 Nice to have you visit sharda 🙂
