A Sunday Muse poem -- Woman

"Natural Woman" Digital Collage Art "
Covid Creations" by Susie Clevenger


Natural Woman

When does a Natural 
Woman hang it all up 
When does she don high 
heels and lipstick 
Rouge on her cheeks and 
eye lashes colored silver, 
or black 

But deep down what are 
her feelings Did she really
hang it on a tree 'cause 
she was the Natural 
Woman still 

You'll know her character 
if you knew her when she 
was a girl, a little girl.  Or 
sometimes a teen.  

And then it comes out 
when she is serious, 
sometimes when she 
plays.  Our Natural 
Woman is a girl at heart, 
the one she had from the 
start, no matter how she 
looks or what she 
pretends to be.

Natural Woman is the 
woman slash girl that 
you'll love. 
Old duds hung on a tree 
New Woman will not be 
Time comes she will be re- 
leased, sprung from gilded cage

How true! We are, after all, our own child, at the heart of us. Brilliant, Jim.

We lose our natural selves as we "grow up." Thankfully, a few of us don't! :) Love it.

I would like to believe I am still 'a natural woman / girl that
friends love.' Happy Sunday!

I tend to be more at ease as a natural woman but, sometimes I have to put on the heels. Playing dress up is something I guess we never out grow.

That girl is still inside, no matter the age. Glad you know that, Jim. Once I watched my grandma, at 90, sashay a few dance steps, smiling, across the room. And I SAW the young woman she once was, still alive in there, shining.

Ms Jim will like this one! Every woman is a girl at heart I think.

The little girl in the natural woman guides as much as she provides memories. Love this interpretation of my art!
