Pristine Beauty
by Bhaskaranand Jha Bhaskar

Varied moods and feelings surge
Well conjured up, shaped
When Nature enthralls us all -
Our heart and mind
And thoughts flow afloat,
Bubbling so delicately
In the surging deluge of life.

Beauty of the body grows,
Glows mysteriously

A question for the lucky ones
by Alex Rose

There is a coldness at my core
Just a feeling, nothing more
When I sink into my spine
Like a draft through open door

Even so, I’m doing fine
The coldness is just one small line
In my body full of other
Full of hustle, love, and brine

Poem to My Uterus
by Lucille Clifton

You uterus
you have been patient
as a sock
while i have slippered into you
my dead and living children
now
they want to cut you out
stocking i will not need

And with what body do they come
by Emily Dickinson

'And with what body do they come?' -
Then they do come - Rejoice!
What Door - What Hour - Run - run - My Soul!
Illuminate the House!

'Body!' Then real - a Face and Eyes -
To know that it is them!
Paul knew the Man that knew the News -
He passed through Bethlehem -

Word as It Is
by Ayatullah Nurjati

Words are real action
The reality is also sometimes stunned by words
Words that Absurd sometimes also have an affair with reality
Reality that plays with phenomena is sometimes not as idealistic as we think

The spirit in the equivalent word chosen as diction may be right next to the norm or ethics
The body in the heart of a word is always meaningful
The spirit that realistic in words is easily co-opted by symbols in the real world
Body of You, me and all of you resides in a name in a word that has special
meaning

i forgive my body

for all that she’s done

i free him from his sins

and nestle in her safety

i thank my body for protecting me

society’s self sacrificial ritual
by Sarah A

They make us hate our bodies so much
that we forget we own it.
we spend our youth hunting for anyone
else to handle the now excessive load.
we let them use it until the fragments of
what was once ours shatters into
something unrecognizable.

why does society push us so quickly into forfeiting our own autonomy?
the first thing we are ready to give up is the one thing we truly own.
