Breathe through
your beautiful skin:

Choose to touch
Yearn to feel
Hope to sense
Long to heal

Skin to skin
Kith to kin
Honest naked
is where life begins

No-one else
can breathe it for you,
though many
may want to try;

They are the ones
who know what
skin is worth:

Live and love through
your beautiful skin

Kate, even sitting here feeling sick as a dog this poem managed to reach through my flu clouded brain and send a tranquil message to my soul. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Wonderful missive. SKin is a shell, it keeps all that we hold dear within, and all that we eschew out and wears our memories like tattoos.

Changing my comment a bit Kate, I was kidding earlier;-) This is a truly brilliant write and the message is wonderful.

We must suck up the essence of life in every way we possibly can so that we don't miss a thing. This is really a cool poem, Kate. Think I am gonna save this one.
Take care,
