Fantasy - Poem by Gabrielle Ciarann Roniyah Baer

Fantasy is
wish-fulfilling,
day-dreaming,
star-gazing,
shedding all fears,
all self
self conscious no longer.

Standing as a woman grown
as high as she hopes to
as deep as a brief span allows,
as wise as love,
as drunken-gay as making love

Walking slow
without false blushing
to that one who needs
but cannot ask her [child]
that one who wants
but will not take her [man]

Giving, touching
holding,
cherishing both
until the man trusts her with the child,
and offers both.


(written in 1977)
