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:
- Every week, we’ll post a word from a different country in the world.
- 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!
- 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.
