    I Am

    I am not delicate.
    I am skinny dipping at 2am;
    I am dancing naked under the full moon and playing in the mud.
    I am the reverberating echoes of a curse word ricocheting off the steeply sloping mountain you thought I couldn’t climb;
    I am bare skin in the deepest depths of winter; I am the song of courage, and the melody of freedom you long to sing.
    I am a fearless mother.
    I am a passionate lover; a devoted friend.
    I am the healer, the witch, the nurturing of your wounds.
    I am the heat of a wildfire, the rage of a storm.
    I am strong.
    Delicate things are pretty-cute, even.
    But I am not delicate.
    I am wild, fierce and unpredictable.
    I am breathtaking.
    I am beautiful.
    I am sacred.
