A conversation with skin
by Corinne Costantino
Skin breathes in covering the soul, soft as silk.
Like the heart holds the essence of our lives.
unifying the body.
Like armor shields the warrior in battle wearing the colors of kings.
Desire shared simply by feel, compassion in ripples.
A ray of brilliant sun opening in the clouds, alighting on fields of life.
Silky smooth and sweet as honey radiating its essence in love or hate.
Unfolding a tale of sorrow with each wrinkle, each scar a victory won.
