Showing ever so slightly parts of me that had been hidden.
Growth, emotion, hope.
Reality unfolded, cosmic ratios becoming one again.
Measurements and waves and pleasure,
Magic unfolded in the layers of my self.
Layers of pain and joy and wisdom,
Cosmic release and expansion beyond.
My proportions glowing, undulating,
Happy to be flowing,
Happy to be on show.
Layers of Nature's shapes and psychic discoveries,
Layers of spiritual increase.
Art that creates the layers,
Layers that display the art,
Entering a state of glee as I frolic in the layers,
As I dance beneath the layers and the layers come undone,
As I revel in the layers and the real me is put on show,
Art and healing and light and shade,
Layers embracing me and layers displaying me,
Layers softening the path as I become.
And I become

With many thanks to the utterly amazing and inspiring Erica Jane Wafford for using me as her canvas for her gorgeous creation, and to all the photographers who captured the magic!! Photos taken during Glastonbury Body Art Festival 2020, in benefit of Children's World. The festival has not been able to go ahead this year due to the pandemic, so feel free to visit both their FB pages as well as my portfolio to show some support too. Another poem with similar vibes is Simply Me, and more poems about my body art model experience will come in the year, so watch this space!
