MAGPIE/ Prompt #49

                                                              photo/ willow/ magpie tales 


CALENDAR GIRLS

The Gazette Girls
were invited to play
in a field of snow.
Pose for a calendar
sure to be a sell-out
at the start of the year.

Please turn this way and that,
let us see at least an ankle
of a fully clad foot.

Smile at the Kodak,
flirt a bit with teasing eyes,
as if your beau was there.

Place a hand on curvy hips,
it's alright to mildly
tempt
and tantalize,
but don't reveal
anything too daring,
if you please,

and never forget
when the time comes, 
to say cheese.

Models, indeed. That reminded me of just how long it must have taken them to prepare to go out in public.

lightverse said...

What a clever idea - calendar girls! I'm glad I came by - I definitely had a lovely surprise.

The ladies had problems with the cheese, I see.

Lyn said...

Hi Friko-
But when they finally smiled, it was heaven!!

They do look like models posing for the camera, don't they? With just a hint of tantalize... there in the tilt of the head.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.

After reading this fantastic poem it reminded me of the movie Calendar Girls which is completely different from the B&W photo.

Lyn said...

A Cuban In London said...

It goes so well with the photo. And I love the rhythm of it. I read it whilst listening to WRTI radio station. I've got the jazz channel on and it suits the atmosphere perfectly.

Greetings from London.

Lyn said...

Greetings to A Cuban-
Thanks for visiting..I too think that a lot was going on under those clothes..jazz..hmmm..

Carrie Burtt said...

Lyn said...

Hi Carrie-
I looked at them and couldn't let them be too serious! thanks...

Cad said...

Nothing like the Calendar Girls I know! :)

Lyn said...

Hi Cad-
Time marches on!!! Thanks for dropping by...

Chrissy said...

oh to go back to a day of modesty where mystery and the unknown/unseen were more seductive than baring skin and leaving nothing to the imagination...just like this photograph did...revealed just a hint of what possibly was...leaves the true artistry up to the eye of the beholder and leaves us with wanting to know more! Nice write :)

Lyn said...

Hi Chrissy-
I'm afraid that modesty has left the stage..where do we go from here?? thanks for visiting...

Lena said...

heh heh....what an amusing and clever take on the pompt! Models these days whip off their clothes with no shame! You worded the historic version wonderfully!

Lyn said...

Hi Lena-
Thanks! Where do we go from here???

rrel said...

never forget to smile... ;)

Lyn said...

Hi rrel-
I am always a smiley face..sometimes too much!! Good thing to know...
