Naked Beauty

She stands naked

exposed

layer after layer

unwrapped

she stands

barren from search…

dripping with blood,

The eyes of her Beloved

searching her own

she falls into sorrow

her hands unclenched

her pride broken

pearls falling one by one

from the perfectly sewn strand

Will she yield to her Beloved’s gifts

of conviction

of removal

of new life?

Her nakedness

proving brokeness

now stands awakened

prepared

for clothing

not her own

but of her Beloved’s

no longer defined

by pearls

but by being His.
