This is a poem I wrote in 2000,in a down time.

Exquisite one



Exquisite one

your teeth are little pearls, luminous

in your smile

eyes the purest aquamarine

could not compare

your scent like the sweetest hay

body taut even after all these years

how do I keep you

women must want to

throw themselves into your arms. 


And me, rolling my energy into the dust

a has been, yes

once my eyes were aquamarine too

now hidden under furrows of yesterday’s skin

my body soft

I know

the value of exercise

and diet

for a woman of yesterday

who does not

live for today

is truly

a has been

Intensely powerful lines. The aspect of self criticism poses a welcomed challenge for me but I find the poet's courage to put it in there admirable and beautiful.

"a has been
invisible." Whoa!
What Mother Nature giveth, Father Time taketh away.
This one is so true. I hope you've now overcome these facts.
Very well written, Janet.

Janet - I trust that you took your on advice, and now are well "fleshened out," as my mother used to say. You were down! Down Under, and then some. Tell us that you're doing very w3ell, and are able to write more "UP" poetry..... - Bill
