Womanhood


Morning:

She wakes beneath her rested lips,
Arches to a body-stretch;

Aligned yawns
Warm the soul,
Fill out the curves
In rhythms of arousal:
Writhe enlaces writhe
In making love to life.

Tuned in, the swell of breasts
Advertises presence,
Rounded readiness.

Petal-fleshed plains -
Cream-tan -
Sliding downward,
Seek out the glory
Past her navel
Where even softer surfaces
Converge upon her
Womanhood.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
