Men in kilts

With yesterday’s St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, I was reminded of all that comes with those celebrations while reading a fellow blogger’s post; one of those components being men in kilts. I remember when I first saw a man wearing a kilt here in Portland, as if it were the most natural thing in the world – and here in Portland, it is! So of course the writer in me found a poem in that, and I share that with you, as well as the wonderful post that inspired me at:   http://travelspirit333.wordpress.com/2012/03/18/st-paddys-day-party-bus/   Be sure to visit Sherry’s blog, it is full of other wonderful posts, and I thank her for the inspiration!

His Feminine Ways


Give me a man

Who is not afraid

To wear a kilt


Showing off a calf

Or daring a peek at a knee

In the ways that women do

The pleated folds of the skirt

Draping around his form

The breeze blows under the fabric

What is to be revealed?

If I am so lucky

The site of manhood

Will be apparent

Underneath a plaid pattern

True masculinity

Is on display

In the boldness

Of a man wearing a kilt
