Stripped


Stripped bare, my garments fall to the ground...free, I expose my scars like medals gleaming. In the moon's glow, I rediscover me. The crowning moon lights my path. Then, soaring, nature exhorts...the fertile earth bearing fruit like a mother awaiting. I pray for a stellar reception, an array of constellations dancing on bare skin. Stripped of mores below, I long to allay my burdens by exposing scars within. By Rhonda Johnson-Saunders, April 17, 2012 for YOUR BIRTHDAY SUIT Contest (Cyndi MacMillan)
