I see her-

fire-blossoms for eyes,

an assortment of extreme

opinions for  sinuous limbs,

walking alone

and liking it too,

brushing her messy curls away from her ears

with impatience hers,

returning stares with relish,

gazing anew at her peepul’s fancy green spring,

registering wonder at its bright green optimism,

gliding through time,

no exactitudes for this wild creature,

only a free float

for swim she can’t,

dance she does though

to only my off-key ditties,

in her mascara and magenta-

green but not gracious,

i want to see her


i need to be free,

BE her,

don’t you see?

P.S: Linked as a Real Toad to the Imaginary Garden for the Sunday Mini-Challenge ( which asks us to release the inner wild woman and I have too, with pleasure. Owe Shay ( for the term fire-blossom.

    I do see her; and I understand the envy. She is an example in many ways, and your writing highlights those traits.

    You reveal her clearly and I suspect that knowing this wild woman will lead you along the path of being free. I love this poem! Thanks for responding to the prompt. I have enjoyed this gathering of women!!!!!!

    I DO see…. though not as often as i’d like to 😉

    ‘an assortment of extreme opinions for sinuous limbs’…. Oh yes, i have witnessed the extremes!

    ‘walking alone and liking it too’… don’t you mean shopping alone? :p

    I could just go on and on for I have seen this wild creature do her off- keyed, drunken dance and it IS fun! Sadly, now the magenta-green outrageousness is too far away for me to enjoy her company much.
