Lately, I’ve been melancholy.
I didn’t understand what the word meant.
My first thought,something sad and lonely.
Then, I looked it up:
essentially, bespoke is the past tense for bespeak.
The appearance of something can suggest or be evidence.
Something made to order, like clothes…
I though about my wedding dress.
It wasn’t made to order.
In fact, I found it at a second hand boutique shop.
My price range,
a beautiful dress.
The dress was too big at first,
but a tailor can do amazing things.
It fit me perfectly.
I’m rambling now.
The truth is
our first thoughts on a subject are often clouded
by the worry, anxiety and fears of our day, but,
the second thoughts should be glimmering…
with hope, joy, love.
