T’ai chi and top fashion for travellers

Pleated Issey Miyake bonnet posing on bedside lamp.
Essential for summertime travellers from temperate zone—an Issey Miyake sun bonnet

The temperature today
won’t go up past 27
so the forecast says.
This morning
I wore a cardigan just for fun.
But every day so far
demands a sunhat for the sun
so I don my ultra-adorable
Issey Miyake bonnet
it squashes into a pocket
and pops out like new.
Once I realised and accepted
that I would always look bizarre
(even more so) under its shade
it became my daily darling.
Sorry, sweetie pleaty.
You deserve better than this.
You’re the tops.
You deserve a sonnet.
