State of undress

Our naked feet feel the grass,
and our naked legs feel the
and the pretty weeds

Our naked hands feel the pears,
and the apples,
the grapes
and the rain

Our naked faces kiss,
and our naked bodies love 
each other,
until the naked moon meets
the flaming constellations

    Smile, *^_^* I find a profound loveliness amid this wonderfully soft and tenderly brushed canvas my dear friend. = And as precious Carolyn touched upon below, I also find images of some place similar unto the garden of eden to found within the colours of this sweetened painting. == Although, the ending holds something perhaps somber in gray somehow? Either or, "Very Beautiful Verse My Friend." === love, jasper

    Clothing was invented by man. Remember Adam felt no shame until after the original sin. Since then we have been trying to cover up all our flaws. This is a beautiful poem. I especially love the thought of the naked moon meeting the "flaming constellations." I sent the email to the wrong address, but saw your Soup mail and will try to send it to the correct address now. Love you, Carolyn
