“Unclothed,” a Sonnet

August 11, 2022

Unclothed before your candid gaze I stand;

Your eyes partake, yet settle on my face

As if you see a place, a verdant land

Unplagued by time, exuding ageless grace.

 

Beneath that longing look I yearn to place

My fleece upon the bed, believing that

The soul, supine after its fall from grace,

Is ravished yet by love once more begat!

 

Do you see, inside my eyes, a star-song

Of established lore, long-ancient telling

Of a page-less story, authored to belong

To us – Love’s sempiternal will aligning?

 

Yes, in your eyes I see my soul addressed:

“You’re spotless, Bride, embrace your nakedness.”
