Independent Woman

She smiles upon coated slate.

Her skeletons become coagulated whispers
Of yesterday

Another blissful awakening
This shedding of redemptions’ sin
Under elastic dialects

Closure within ephemeral slow dances
Irregular beats of her drum

Now
Steadfast acoustic riffs
Forge constellations' new tomorrow

As she swims through cashmere laden sands
Without the need to float
On dependency’s raft

    Hi Drake; I hope you are doing good, I'm still hanging in there. I had not been around because I was locked out Of Poetry Soup for 6 days. They just let me back in. I had to read this poem, since I have always been a very independent woman. Enjoyed it very much. Thanks for sharing..... Lucilla

    Good morning Drake! "Without the need to float"--so profound. That is the essence of independence.

    This almost felt like you where describing music. Mind you each woman is unique and beautiful like a song. I enjoyed your poem Drake, mind you that is not unusual. Have a great day Drake. You remind me of the Song Handy Man, all the girls are gathering around and a few of us fellows are looking for pointers.

    Good, at least you can value & appreciate my approach to the message. I don't cater to shortcuts in my style. There are too many of those in life today anyway, causing it to spoil some folks. For me, unwrap the gift, unwrap the layers, slowly. Thank you so much for this, Cherie. FYI, I could NEVER solve a Rubiks Cube. lol
