Seeking Cool

"Write a haibun using the word, "hike".

Thinking back to days when we could not wear pants to school
or work.  As a teen, I would leave the house with a knee length 
skirt.  Before I entered school, I'd hike up my skirt, and roll
the waist several times to keep it in place.  Of course then,
I had to wear long sweaters or blouses to hide a bulging waist
roll.  Ah, things teenage girl do to be cool.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    I enjoyed your take on the prompt, Sara, it took me back to my own school days and rolled over waistbands!


  2. Ha, when I went to school everyone (boy and girl) wore jeans. But that was the 70s in Sweden.


  3. I remember Catholic school (K-8) uniforms, and my Salesian High School dress codes (Collar shirt, tie, sport jacket OR Don Bosco sweater). Thanks for the nostalgia! 😉
