Woman


Shy young girl,
Fat blowsy wife,
Woman of leisure holidaying in Greece.

A harlot painted, dangling cigarette,
Tall skinny model sashaying down the ramp,
TV anchorwoman with the confidence of leather,
The kitty-party bitch.

A Sherpa woman braving icy winds,
The Raani of Jhansi bloodied sword ready,
The mother who pleads with her heart in her eyes.

  1. This is a nice poem. A little bit strange, but wonderful. I love that last line [...] The mother who pleads with her heart in her eyes [...] Just wonderful.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Interesting. You have touched upon women and their distinct personalities, trying to bring out the contrast perhaps, and showing the reader where each one of them stands.

    Soul, you got that right. You might also look at it as various roles a woman might play..
