Naked


The cherry tree
naked in winter...

If only I too can be naked
no shame
no fear
no guilt
nothing in me but just a reality
that I too like the cherry tree
will bloom proud and vibrant
in the springtime.

The cherry tree
naked in winter
I too want to be
...naked.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
