Blazon of woman

Soul reclining, pillowed into Self,
mind resigning, anchored into heart,
limbs embracing all that is on offer,
skin relating, perfumed rich delight,

as flesh is tracing, fingered truths,
with hair in luscious, lingering locks

of gentled face; eyes revealing from

brows as pure-drawn arch, to lips
revising, smiles and sorrow’s frown,
where spirit treads on narrow, gentle
feet, with soles in patterned tracing,

through dusty days, where walks the
woman, proud displaying, the blazon
of herself as maiden, mother crone-
born from the bud of blessed, life-

kissed being, protected within the
arch of bone and body; gifting that
badge of bountiful birth, to all….

    I like what you did here. Cheers, Jules
