The Naked Wilde

To be Naked
As love itself.
Oh, what-a-time
For a most-tender hug.

As vulnerable courageousness
Tugs on the wind
While the air moves through marrow
To excite what is life

Clear through the soul
… through exposed armor’s flesh
The still penetration
Of the self portrait arts

    For once I am without words. Deeply moved. Promise to comment again once I’ve composed myself.

  • From one livid voice to another. That is a compliment! Thank you Lee.

    lee – what’s your take on this? i gather the same as cc’s?

    Hi Suzanne. Actually, it was not a collaboration. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that C.C. had written a poem inspired by my humble photo which I uploaded to my portfolio only yesterday. The words are very moving and particularly poignant due to things which are happening in my life at present. C.C. is a very generous spirit. Can there be a more heartfelt gift than a poem?

    ‘’Clear through the soul’’ indeed! A moment caught … by camera and words … beautiful

  • Thank You for honoring both works pijinlane, and thank you for consistently letting your clear soul shine with a beauty and wisdom I so adore.

    “Vulnerable courageous” … what a wonderful interplay … reminds me of a young women who was extremely “damaged” yet so inspirational in the most strangest of ways …. spent nearly three years involved with her “clearing” so to speak .. this poetic expression works !!

  • Hi and welcome Crowmanic. I’ve heard such amazing words of praise about you and the beauty of your wisdom. Hope to keep in touch as often and as frequent as possible. I look forward to reading some of the writings you suggested to Mariam as well you work to. To Vulnerable Courage!!! Cheers!
