Day 21 21.11.22

Prompt: Write a poem using at least three, or all of six provided words.

Release Button

My fingers on the 
button that would gather and 
hold the skirt allowing it to flare 
in a beautiful sweep of shapely thigh,
not like those toxic tents of yesteryear 
that would hide an entire village,
these wisps of cloth fire the heart and 
lift imagination leaving one feeling 
completely alive.
