Shades of Pink

Protested pink, as a child,
associated, as it was,
with all things weak –
or so I perceived.

A new generation redefines
the contours of pink –
adds edges and function
a statement of empowerment

Now, I adopt the shade,
insert pink in place of blue,
transform expression –
celebrate pink’s invention.

(Inspired by Nancy Merrill’s A Photo A Week challenge: shades of pink.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. I know what you mean about pink as a child. Never my choice, as it usually meant something fancy or something that would slow me down. Also it was my sister’s typical choice (there’s a big reason right there LOL)
