I fell for her as soon as I saw her.It was as if she had been waiting for me, for this one particular moment, for when our worlds would collide. My heart was thumping, my breath caught in my throat. What should I do? How should I approach her? Was I good enough? Dammit, did I even deserve her, me? Was I just kidding myself, selling myself a line, convincing myself that I could live up to her demands?
one – the skirt of my wildest
dreams. Be mine, won’t you?
It’s Haibun Monday over on dVerse where we are invited to wax lyrical in romantic form. Yes, this is tongue in cheek, but I am a real sucker for the clothing over at Get Cutie – a Brighton-based shop and online retailer which makes clothes using the most gorgeous and eye-catching prints. Sometimes I do feel a little like I’m not quite good enough for their clothes to be honest, although I do own Poppy and a lovely wrap dress!
If you’re looking for true romance, well, hopefully the other poetic contributions can slake you thirst – writing romance really isn’t my forte!

Ha! This made me smile!
I like this tongue-in-cheek take on the prompt. And of course you are good enough for her and I imagine she swirls gracefully as you walk.
Thank you 🙂
Lol! I wish you and your skirt every happiness. 🙂

You caught me off guard, Freya! Wonderful ode to a floral skirt! 🙂 This brought a smile.
That was the idea!

Great take on the prompt, Freya! And I love the skirt.
Thank you 🙂
I had one like that ages ago. The flowers were a lighter pink though. Made it myself too! And definitely deserved having it! Lovey write!
Oh, well done! I don’t have time to make my own clothes. I can, and have done before now.
It was a long time ago. I also, now, don’t have the time nor the inclination. 🙂
Very funny piece, Freya! I read it before the picture uploaded and thought this was a rainbow romance, which made me ecstatic. 🙂
It could have been… quite easily 🙂
Nice! Mine is definitely a rainbow romance. 🙂
Oh yes! What a beautiful skirt!
I like your fun and quirky take on the prompt! The skirt is gorgeous.
Thank you, Mish! I looove this skirt 🙂
