The Wild Woman - Poem by Latha Prem Sakhya

The Wild Woman
She surfaced
Through the myriads of materialistic layers
Overpowering and taming the self
Ensconced in mores and traditions.
A butterfly in its beauty and naturalness
A life force, free, unhampered
A spirit of attunement
Leading to pathways strange
Hitherto submerged and hidden
Trusting your heart
Trusting the small guiding voice
Inside, wild, yet authentic
And true to self
Doing what gives joy-
Laughing, crying, dancing, howling,
Sniffing, growling, scratching, loving,
Running free, taking naps- the female soul
The source of the feminine, a luminous being
Sagacious, instinctual source of feminine survival.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have always felt that women live their lives full in their inner space which is hardly revealed to any one.Its a world where she can live full and be her true self fearing no one.Its this that makes her wild and close to nature like the wolf.

    The source of the feminine, a luminous being
    Sagacious, instinctual source of feminine survival...............quite fascinating story by the life of an woman, yet of passion utterly doused in emotion eloquently flowing by ingenuity through metaphors and imagery,10++++, thanks for sharing

    hmm interesting.
    As a woman will have to read a few times to see how i feel about this. Well written though.
    ' howling, Sniffing, growling, scratching, loving,
    Running free, taking naps- the female soul' for a moment I thought perhaps you were writting of a dog. I hope women are rated above a dog!
