My body and I had a chat today
When I paused briefly
To look at her nakedness just as I got in the shower
A little rounder
A little softer for sure
Lines, bumps, curves and colours
Familiar shapes, some only barely now
What do you need today? I asked
A lymph drainage massage?
I know! How about a green juice detox?
Acceptance, she replied
…isn’t that what we ALL want?
