Womyn with a Why?

Lately I have been processing the idea of "woman" and a man's place in her being.


Why should a man's presence in her existence presumably throw her off balance


Consume so much of her time, her energy and love that she appears diminished


She looks as if she would not be complete without him...


She is left without...


My thoughts are with the woman who needs a man to feel complete

and my heart is with the woman who has the agency to question WHY?

autumn trees

today the trees gave me sweet gentle love
with kisses on my face of falling leaves
and strokes of my hair carried by subtle wisps of wind
warm colors rain on me
and tickle the brown of my skin
as I strolled down on concrete sidewalks
my feet are flooded with the remnants of love making that
the city has felt from these givers of life
