deep and late into the hem of night my thoughts question uncertainties, perhaps my heart does not believe in life anymore, and deem men as anti-heroes; so i lock the door of my tactile pores, yet i speak of men in my accepted duality somehow, honoring the smell of their laughter, and their taste of affection with anger to sketch their contours with my skin on white linen between ceiling and lamp; that when i open my eyes to look at their faces, i see the whole universe. then to recall how gazing through a skyline the moon reflects tints of past flames and strangers, as peak of moments’ rapture explodes slicing the darkness ...changing whimpers to wonder... that all i could say is “ thank you”, appreciating my imperfectly perfect world... i recall filling a basin of warmth for them when streams of giving chains me in the under –toe of hunger’s ebbs and tides,
embracing the divine wonder in their beings.
------------------- * if we perceive a man or woman from a perspective of seeing his/ her inner beauty despite some flaws, wouldn't it be a wonderful place to be? *inspired by Louis Armstrong’ “ what a wonderful world” Frank H's I Recall Contest by nette onclaud

    Great writing, sweetheart. I loved every line.... Just one rhetorical question... "How can we expect others to find in us that which we cannot find ourselves?" .. Congratulations.... Jake

    I have always had trouble finding my own self identity. Because, I was always judged from the outside-in, instead of from the inside-out. This world would be so wonderful if we did not judge people at all! A great poem, with a great message!...Thank you very much for the great comments, Nette!

    Ow how it is that we shsre our innerself in relationships yet looking back each love gone becomes a stranger.Strange how emotions fade but true.Re men..We love them and We hate them as the saying goes.We can t stand them yet can t live without them...I love this me a sad yet beautiful melanchonic nostalgia..To freeze time...but time moves on..yet love can be behind the door.One of my favs. of youts dear Nettie..Just beautiful

    Hi, Nette! How're you doing? While I was reading this I swear Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" was playing in my mind. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that it was inspired by another great song. I really love this poetic and autobiographical piece and I'm really crazy about your kind of imagery. *Vigorous applause

    To feel, see the beauty of life in all its textures and still wonder at how it is perfect in your eyes is a marvel. I hope you think of men in the same vein. Deeply moving poetry at its best. ---MP
