My Little Black Dress

Big things happen in my Little Black Dress
I put it on, take a deep breath,
and instantly Impress
I exude Class, Elegance and Charm
As I stand in my Pose
Yet I’m Sexy, Wild and Free
Looking like Anything goes.
Whether I’m Mourning or Messing,
Dressed up or dressed down
My Little Black Dress takes me all around town
I can go to church or to the club
From breakfast to dinner
With my Black Dress on I immediately
Look and feel like a Winner
Stylish, versatile and always Ready
Whatever occasion may arise
With my Black Dress on and the right attitude
I am a Master of Disguise
Add a hat and some pearls with a little finesse
Perfect for a brunch or a tea
Then switch to hoops and stilettos and a bit of pizzazz
And what will be, will definitely be!
Always expecting the best and never settling for less
Because big things happen in my Little Black Dress


The poem was written by Cynthia l King aka “clk” and is used here with her permission.

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.

    Now that I visit, I see this in my favs; whether spontaneously from minutes ago, or from a previous rushed visit, I’m not sure, as time flies. But can I say “WOW!” Angela, I love this. Fantastic geometry and impression of a mannequin in a store window display. This is beautiful! Congratulations on your fine Host Hullabaloo gallery, by the way.
