what is a woman?

Today’s Women on Wednesdays post is a poem inspired by my personal journey. It reflects how nu gymnosophy / clothes free living impacted my concept of womanhood for myself.  

Of course this also honors our currently open Clothes Free Poetry Contest, which you should definitely check out!


what is a woman?

what is a woman?

they ask, they tell

in guesses we dwell

as if we weren’t human

.

and how does one dress?

in a skirt and a tee?

or in pants? silly me

I don’t know, I confess

.

and what of its face?

and how does it move?

and how does it prove

in societal space?

.

you know what I found?

that this is a woman:

simply a human!

does that astound?

.

how does one dress?

in every or nothing

perhaps only something

I know, I confess

.

whatever the face

however one moves

simply breathing it proves

in natural space

.

at the heart of the core

beyond cells and blood

our bright spirits flood

nothing less, nothing more

.

what is a woman?

they really can’t tell

little illustrates well

because we’re simply human

.
