In Your Nakedness

In Your Nakedness short poem

Photo by storyvillegirl

When mired in jadedness
Or weary of Truth,
I sleep babe-like in your nakedness,
O bosom pal of my youth;
The nature of mothers in you
Suckling my sleep!

Or when dark empires above
Shut my mind,
I star-and-moon sketch the skies
I catch in your eyes!
And in your nakedness, find
Truth is Love!

Poet’s Notes:
Nakedness: symbol for truth, fidelity, purity and innocence, etc
Suckling my sleep: image of a mother breastfeeding a sleeping babe (note the onomatopoeic use of sibilants i.e. the repeated use of the letter s to simulate the sound of sleep.
Dark empires: metaphor for malicious forces above or beyond our control
