“A succulent wild woman is one of any age who feels free to fully express herself in every dimension of her life.”  Sark

For Her

How can a label be drawn
from so narrow a quarter
that would imprison her,
her cover is always antithetical,
a contradicted series of paradoxes
packed in a conundrum,
Pandora loosed from that
quietude misjudged,
from her still centre
comes wild power.

  3. Truly beautiful. Yes, such hidden emotions lie in a woman’s heart which if unleashed would be wild power. But unaware of this, we misjudge her and give her labels.

  7. Your quadrille packs quite a punch, Paul. I especially love:
    ‘a contradicted series of paradoxes
    packed in a conundrum’
    ‘from her still centre
    comes wild power.’
    And what an energy-filled image!

  10. What a wonderful poem, honouring women. Women are very powerful, but sometimes hard to unterstand. Try to get an answer by questioning the meaning of one of their tattoes. 😉 Michael
