This is Day 11, Poem 11 of the Poetry Challenge. I like this one! Let me know what you think!
Note to Self
This evening, I will give thanks to
my metaphoric shield against insult,
keeper of blood and bone,
When I am cold,
my pores tighten against the wind.
When I am hot,
secreting salty water
to keep me cool.
As I bathe
I scrub at its flaws
with pumice-like roughness,
often forgetting the way
it soaks in the sun
turning me deeper brown
or exudes my scent.
When I walk
my thighs collide sweetly,
their soothing friction
of pleasures to come.
Lest I take my skin for granted,
from now on
touch it lightly.

|I love it, like a soft feather gliding all over!
Like your way of thinking Carla, skin/pumice stone, exfoliating by why, was interesting...
When hot - yes skin will expand and so my rings won't fit -usually-
WE can never take our skin for granted, love this ode' to your grateful vessel! Since I have had Reiki recently, my skin is ultra-sensitive, to touch almost hurts... but it's a peaceful feeling...

|This is a fine ode to a part of the body that may well indeed often be taken for granted. Thank you, Carla. Love and best wishes to you,
