NaPoWrMo #2: Body Plans

For today’s napowrimo effort, an edited version of one of my found poems.

Body Plans

Too much has been allowed to pass. 

                 We must gather the threads; observe what history weaves for women.

Mythical beginnings of conflict hold

                invisible maps of body plans illustrating a complex dance.

 Kaleidoscopes of glittering pigments reveal

                eyes, wings, elaborate bodies; luring insects with colour and fragrance

Breathtakingly complex, she improvises

                 through many variations; girl,  future mother, grandmother.

Walking evolutions path, swimming

                in a floating house, reaching for the sky; Heroica faces land and sea

– and the first feathers appear.
