#NPM22 – The Intimacy of the Muumuu

The Intimacy of the Muumuu

beneath the colours, soft cotton, wide berth

naked freedom, breasts breathing

opening the space between skin & covering –

the letting-go-of-the-day-dress

she puts on when she wants to run away

it keeps her home-bound, unwound

conjures reading & candles lit to light the shadows

out of hiding, into hymn – her heart sounds hum

Love Speaks…can you hear it?

Thank you to Mariette Jones for her weekly ‘Love Speaks‘ message – have you heard it? Yesterday, she shared my poem, The Intimacy of Being in a Garden. (Mariette is also the Sunshine Staffer at Gertrude’s Writing Room! Woot!)
