Owls

I hear you

I see you too

Solitary creatures

Of the night

These nights

Not so solitary

Two, three

No five, maybe even six

Who cooks for you?

Barred owls

And one

Unmistakable

Low long

Who, who, who

Who indeed

The Great Horned

Harbinger of change

I always know

When you sing me to sleep

My life is on a path

Toward something

Scary, new, different

Usually good

I hope you’re right

My mind wants to tell me otherwise

I love your calls

Even more special

Those moments of grace

When you make certain

I see

Up close and personal

If I could just touch

Silky soft

Feathers

So beautiful

Alas

Protected by razors

Talons of might

Look but don’t touch

I know

Always did wonder

If you ever did let me touch

Would it melt us both

Just a fanciful dream

Like so many

For now give thanks

For your presence

Your soft song to sleep by

Beautiful

Owls

Corset

Aches still within

Support not seen

Bones of steel

A metaphor

For the usual self

The real beauty

Implied by devices

Marketed to provide

Visible

Sterotypical

Beauty

Beyond bones

Gratitude felt

For pain relief

For functionality

In work and walking

Hopes

Maybe, once or twice

More than support

Will be enjoyed

The marketing worked

The buyer saw

Beautiful potential

To model it’s finest qualities

For another

The others in mind

Slow to move

Thoughts unknown

She waits patiently

Daydreaming

For future dreamy nights

With just one thing on

Better dreams

Nothing but a

Beautiful self

Enjoyed in

Accepting love

Beholders that accept

All

Regardless

Of matching

Cosmo

Beauty more than

Skin

Deep

In love


Picture is just one of many available for purchase on Wish or Amazon. I didn’t have any corset pictures, and none were available in the stock image pool.


May you be supported by the Divine (and not feel the need for a corset). May you enjoy life and see beauty everywhere. May you see your own beauty. May your lover (s) appreciate you as you are, regardless of what you wear. May you feel good and enjoy all of your days. May you feel at ease in your body always and go at a comfortable safe pace.

True

Blue

You

Hug true

Hug me

Tightly

Love me deeply

See me

Even in despair

You see

My Light

That which

I can’t fathom

My good

Never hides

From your eyes

Deeper than ocean’s

Tides

Waters of strong emotion

Help me

See

Your love

More overpowering than

Garlic that makes me

Feel like a vampire

Fleeing in fear

No blood, no energy

Scared, lonely

Until the welcome blanket

Of your

Hug

Thank you Nathan for your enduring support. If only more were like you. I love you.

May you all have loving supportive people in your lives, especially when you need them most.
