wow poetics: i am alive

For this week’s Women on Wednesday, poetry takes the stage, as is appropriate given that is currently hosting the 4th annual Clothes Free Poetry Contest “The Body as Poetry” as well.

I offer a series of poems throughout the day today.

“I am alive,”
says my heart
to my head

feel me beat
through your feet
when you walk
down the street

bare your soles
open toed
press your heel
really feel

where you stand
take your hand
touch me here
never fear

with your palm
to your chest
take your gaze
to the west

hear the sound
of your breath
even though
you have wept

“I am alive”
says my heart
to my soul

I am free
Just to be
I’m alive
I am me
