Renaissance Faire

Beautifully costumed performers
Stroll with instruments in hand
Plucking and strumming
They swing their hips and gowns
They gaze at each other... lounging on the lawn or a bench
Rich brocades and velvet bodices
Entice you to view them
They raise their voices in unison
And call to each other liltingly
They walk slowly arm in arm
And recite their woes and cares
Their goblets clank against their belts
Their petticoats and many layers rustle
As they go by

About dianatenes

I was born in San Jose/Silicon Valley and raised in the Bay Area. I have been writing poetry since I was a child and recently started to share it. I read some poems at a Poetry meeting for the first time last year. I have co written, produced and directed children's theater in the East Bay. I have self published a guide to eco-friendly, second hand shopping and recycling "90% OFF Every Day! available on Amazon and Kindle. I have worked as an Actress, Make-up Artist for Film/TV and Face Painter, Costume Designer and run a small business selling vintage clothing (pop-ups).
