Scribble Outside the Lines




         When edges are shapely,
               as curves match the form in a perfect- yet ( imperfect way )
        of course they do, as everything certainly falls into place
                                                                                      - perfectly

                                  for the Creator created me, in this fashion


         If painting a picture- through words, sometimes a hint of color
                                 ( filling in my presence )
                  one would capture the essence, the passion
                                                        tenderness and grace

                     for the Creator created me, in this fashion


     While waiting for the sunrise, in eyes of a light brown ( a smile is found )
                          upon the curve of my face
            - in the fullness of soft lips, at the top there is a small dip,
                     as the touch of day caresses soft vanilla skin,
                                skin not holding the depth of the sun


                           ~ now the scribbling has begun ~


               The melody of the wind moves across golden sand,
                            hair holding moments of brown
                                      dancing everywhere
                                 lingering gently in my hand


                       for the Creator created me, in this fashion


         Like a flower stretching, reaching beyond the possibilities of it all
                the stem is long, my being is tall- but not too tall
                                              ( five following six )
                          I feel so alive,
                                      because this is where I belong


                              for the Creator created me, in this fashion


             If painting a picture- through words, sometimes a hint of color
                               ( filling in my presence completely )
                                         yes, scribbling outside the lines
                           one would capture the essence of

                                                                 . . . Simply Me

So much to be understood from each blade of grass in this meadow. I may be a dull weed, but I stand erect in recognition of the lush orchestrations surrounding me here. All seemingly within reach, but I haven't brought my hands along. Congratulations on POTW, too! That's really neat. Yours is more than a worthy cause of universal celebration. :)

A simply wonderful writer, (with simple humility), but far from simple ... it takes extraordinary depth and imagination to write with such fluidity and grace ... we are ALL just tools for the Master, but created with complex fascination and intricate wonder - unique miracles of divine intent! Loved this write, and it's going to my favs. Blessings to you and yours, my friend. :-) <3

Brandy, this was absolutely beautiful and having read your poetry for a long time..."simple" does not even belong in the same sentence when describing you or your poetry. You are an amazing poetry with such a soft lingering touch to your words. And this was no exception

So many wonderful line you wrote Brandy! I like the sound of the repeating line: for the Creator created me, in this fashion...So many sights and sounds emanate from your heart to describe the essence. Wonderfully done to create "simply me" on paper ..Excellent Write.
