[Poetry] Wrinkled by the Sun

Wrinkled by the sun,
Still a beauty outdone by none.

Re-posting this old favorite of mine because it ties in nicely with this week’s World of Words prompt: 美 (mĕi) – beauty, beautiful. World of Words is a weekly prompt I’m co-hosting with the lovelies Rosemarie of A Reading Writer and Maria of Doodle Scribbles.

The rules are simple:

  1. Every week, we’ll post a word from a different country in the world.
  2. Write a poem inspired by that word and use the hashtag #worldofwords. You can also tag us so we know to come and check out your poem!
  3. We’ll be sharing our favorites on Instagram, the main hub of our co-hosting duties, but depending on the response here on WordPress, I’ll share my favorites here too.

Fun Fact: The “M” in my pseudonym, Jade M. Wong, stands for Mei (which is my birth name) and the Chinese character for my name is indeed this one.

  1. […] Jade M. asked “Do two lines make a poem?” and Whisper2Scream replied with a poem. I encourage everyone to check out both Jade M’s and Whisper2Scream’s sites and read their poems. Both of these fabulous writers have inspired me to write my own two line poem. […]


  2. And if we get our wrinkles because we are out and about, serving the Lord, who cares about the wrinkles anyway? I believe God takes note of every one of them that was achieved in this way and counts them as rewards.
