a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Sharing Yourself With Open Link Night

I may stand buck naked
But you'll never see my soul
Glimpses
Or hints of who I am
Will peek out
Only to run quickly
And hide
When you look
I may stand buck naked
But you'll never see my soul

I might have to stand there with you! Loved this!

Sandee said...

That's so true. Some folks will never know us no matter how close they think they are. Loved this.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Just something about being buck naked...

Mystic_Mom said...

Ah yes. Being physically naked seems less naked than to be emotionally or spiritually seen. Well done!

Linda Wildenstein said...

I love the way you write...prose or poetry. I like the way your mind works. Oma Linda

Brian Miller said...

what is it that is poking out?
smiles. ha.
yes it takes much more than nudity to really know someone...something high school boys dont learn til later in life...ha

Grace said...

Like the refrain ~ There is a difference to being naked and revealing one's soul ~

Country Gal said...

Oh my I wouldn't want to stand buck naked for I would scare them lol! Well put though . Have a good day !

Lynne said...

Never, ever give all of self away . . . buck naked reveals flesh, not soul . . .

LindaG said...

Now that was an interesting piece, Gail.
Hope your Wednesday is a good one. :-)

Willow said...

Well they will probably see my soul ... before seeing me buck naked . lol
Profound prose in your writing.



Claudia said...

a cool pic...and the soul is always invisible for the eyes, right...? just visible for the heart..

Josie Two Shoes said...

I loved the defiance of this poem, it is my anthem too. What you see... there is so much more to me that you will never know!

Mama Zen said...

Ha! I really like this.

Sue said...

It's always good to hold a little back, isn't it?

(And in my case, the buck naked thing ain't what it used to be...)

;)

Sandra said...

i have not seen a crawdad like this one since i was 12 years old... and if you saw ME buck naked you would not even think about the SOUL part...

McGuffy Ann said...

This is really a good one. I like this one very much.

Susan Kane said...

"Defiance"--such a great summary! I love this poem. It shows such personal integrity.

Pat said...

Very good! Although who wants to see your soul when we can see your who-ha?

JUST KIDDING!!! ;)

Dip-Dip and the Bridge said...

Haha, love that first comment!
That is an amazing little creature.

So, this is a crawdad - OK - neat - looks like a little lobster to me. I expect you eat them the same and cook same. I have seen people catch them and eat them on internet. Are these in your creek and do you catch them.
Buck Naked maybe, but one still does not know me either :) Nicely done

Michaele said...

It is hot here too :)

DesertHen said...

Nicely done! Won't be seeing me buck naked...lol!
