When You See A Woman: A Poem To Celebrate #InternationalWomen’sDay

OBSERVE:  The feel of her face with the fluid moves of her cheeks,   Along with the tip of her chin and the curve of her neck.  Her arms straight unto her nails and her waist,  Her hips towards her backside to the very nails on her toes.  For she’d not need royalty before her reality gleams,  And her clothing could only enhance or obscure the depth of her being.    NOTICE:  She walks, leaps or sways with the very gale of feminity.  Her voice rises or deepens in the wave of existence of all stages of life.  Her eyes, the mirror to her heart; her lips, the wells of power.  The sensation that rises from her nerves to her nipples and labia  Energizes her will to be boundless either she be ravished or respectfully bedded.  Her built as she walks through life cut, crushed, companioned or celebrated.    ADMIRE:  Her ferocity in the face of love – wild, yet bridled.  Her compassion beyond the umbilical connection, still for nature’s protection.  Her beauty that may shine even from ashes of gray clumped in years.  Her melody that gladdens the hearts that seek mirth and warmth.  Her sleekness in delivering health or her skillfulness in drilling even the deepest hole    In the souls that crash her path to fill them up with what they deserve.   …
