Weekly Photo Challenge: All Dressed “Up” & Poem Day 20

Dressed up for the prom

All dressed up for the prom

Prom Night

Smile take my picture

it’s that time of day

that time of year

to get all dressed up

and act like a grown up

you’ll never be

this young

this fresh

standing by the sea

standing in the sun again.

Smile!

Carol Carlisle

On an evening drive around Berkeley Marina we came upon these lovely ladies all dressed up for a prom posing for one another. I stuck my smart phone out the car window said “smile” and they obliged me with big smiles lost in the light of the setting sun.  ( you think maybe this is a poem if I just change the line breaks?)

On an evening drive around the Marina

we came upon six lovely ladies

all dressed up for a prom, posing

for one another.

 to join in the ceremony

I put my camera up to the car window

said “smile”

 they obliged

lost in the light

of their own making.

 This is my take on Weekly Photo Challenge suggested the topic “Up” !

  1. an evening drive

    six lovely ladies spied

    all dressed-up posing

    of their night supposing

    the moment’s mile

    I clicked saying “smile”

    shy giggly grins

    their youth filled whims

    lost in the light

    setting sun.was right

    (your words I just used poetic license)

    Nice perspective of “UP”

  2. Never went to the Prom. Just cost too much back then. Would have spent almost $5.00 for a flower and go eat at a local cafe. Way to expensive. lol
