Dress Code

Posted on

In the beginning
World falls into sin
The first couple are
Dressed in skins
Dressed in leafs
Then
Knitted skins
Knitted leafs

Thousand years
Hunting
Animal skins such as
Crocodile
Snake
Leopard
Tiger
Bear
Goat
As clothing

Thousand years
Animal hair such as
Sheep
Are
Designed
Knitted
Woven
As clothing

Before AD
Cloth is found
Dye is found
Mixed together
As clothing

3000BC
Silk is found
From silkworm
Spurn by spurn
Yarn by yarn
As clothing

What else will be our clothing?
Iron or steel?
Knight armour?
Astronaut suit?

Dress designs are also
Defined through eras.
Olden days,
Dress designs are covered.
Modern days,
Dress designs are exposing body.

Conclusively, dress modestly.
Modest dress code
Out of respect.

The above poetry started with, “Dressed in skins | Dressed in leafs | Knitted skins | Knitted leafs” after I read about dress code issue. As I stumbled upon Ian’s remarks, my imagination starts to wander. The article can be found at Ericalagan.net/dress-code-st-anthony at ‘ianscyberspace on March 4, 2013 at 7:50 am’ mentioning, “The Bible says Adam and Eve were created naked so under the right circumstances where minds are pure that’s the ideal. But when in disobedience they realized they were in fact naked they put leaves on, and God substituted skins. Perhaps you should turn up at church in a leaf costume or skins and then he would be happy to have you go back to the traditional costumes which are both beautiful and appropriate. Its this kind of attitude your cleric espouses that turns people off religion today. It’s called majoring in minors!”

When I search the origin of cotton, the website wasn’t sure its date. The article is at here. The origin of silk is at this link

This whole process is very challenging for me to express my feelings and ideas through poetry.

About Yoshiko

I'm a housewife. My hobby is listening to music, watching movies and dramas, read Manga, and drawing. I enjoy watching Asian movies and dramas such as Japanese, Hong Kong, and Korean. Inspiration comes through my emotions and when I pursue my hobbies. How I wish my Song Lyrics can become a song. And I wish to learn piano, but I don't have the time as now I have a baby. Now, he is a cute and active four years toddler.
