  • Fortuitous, effervescent
    frothy and freedom bound
    I frolicked in a shallow sea
    feeling sand ooze between
    my toes, ripples of
    waves tickled my body.
    An uninhibited little girl
    focusing on the now, effortlessly,
    unaware that as my body
    changed to womanhood
    I would become inhibited,
    shy, covering up body and
    mind no longer free to be me.
