NaPoWriMo Day Ten: Pet Peeve

Pet Peeve

Not words about
women's bodies so
please stop using vagina for

written 3/14/13 and submitted to 
Okay, so this wasn't written for NaPoWriMo, but the prompt today was to write an un-love poem. I certainly un-love when people say "vagina" but mean "vulva". I know it's not the prettiest word ever, but come on, there are much worse (most of which are slang for vulva.) I have also had vulvas on my mind since I read Yvonne Osborne's wonderful poem The Me In Me

Now, since I have become somewhat accustomed to writing something new each day, I need to go do that now (especially since my smaller sweetie-pie is amusing himself pretending to be Donald Duck and  flopping on the bed and not climbing all over me.) I think now that I have posted this one I should be able to write something else.

Oh yeah, and look y'all, it's a cinquain!


  1. I love it - and that it's a cinquain.

    1. Hi Coreena! Thank you for stopping by. I am glad you enjoyed it. Yay cinquains!

  2. Oh! I just didn't read far enough down in your post. I like this little piece, yes, a cinquain. Beautiful! Thanks for the link. That's awesome of you. And I think the word vulva is a very pretty word.

    1. Hi Yvonne! I think I may have done this poem a disservice by posting another one right after. Thanks for the visit and the kind comments. Every time I read your poem I like it more.


Hi! Thank you for the visit! Grab a plate and a sweet tea and let's dig in. It may take a while, but I always try to reply and return visits.
