The Gion District This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
     Caked, snowy face paint

Lips darker than

The ripest cherry blossom

Red plum

Jet black hair

Sleek perfection

Not a strand out of place

Long, slender fingers

Have spent hours pouring tea

Layers of vibrant silk

Their intricate patterns

Dance in the wind

Lavender, soft greens and blues

Vibrant reds and whites

Platform sandals

Soft, cotton socks

The old world meets the new

In the Gion district of Kyoto

You will find

The most beautiful women in all of Japan
