                       Wide-Armed and Stretched

Colorful and bright

I stand tall on my toes tips…bending from my lower back

My neck is tight and chin pointed high.  My hair kisses my shoulder blades

Wide-Armed and Stretched

I reach

My body nude and erect…Free and loose.

My thighs strong and the veins in my feet pronounced

I lift

Wide-Armed and Stretched

High and open

My dark eyes are colorful

My cheeks are plump

My smile… so smooth

Wide-Armed and Stretched

I curve and flutter…Graceful and Free

…..Showcasing every speckle, every hidden hair of feather,

all hues glistened and lit, luminous and vibrant,

every wing of me..

vivid and beaming..

all for You to see.

"I Float".. I Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee..ain't nobody got nothin' on me." I Float with iridescent blue wings.. high on top of purple dust..low to the oceans floor. I spin and whirl, wallow and sink. I am who I am, only because it's who I've been blessed to be. All-knowing and nothing. I knew you long before YOU knew you. Plugging USB cords to the universal cipher, I stay lit. I do what I do, simply because I DO IT. I love, hurt, bleed, laugh, cry, dance. F up, F down, (sideways and on my knees). I pray for forgiveness, and sleep on books of ancestral secrets. I love life because "it's" mine. I want bliss, happiness, joy, and "The love of my life", but I face reality that I may have to settle for the fattest, funkiest, avocado, soy burger and wheat-grass juice. "I Float"..Not fast. Not slow. Just enough for (YOU) to stay with...(ME). Mantra (Writer, Poet and Artist from The Greater St. Louis Area)

  2. Mantra, that’s lovely. I will never look at a butterfly the same way again. You have Such a way with words!
