Monday poetry train - Vergetures

Vergetures
Vous racontez toutes une aventure
Celle de moi
Devenant une femme
Celles de mes hanches
Disent que mon corps
Est prêt à accepter la vie
Celles de mes seins
Disent à combien
Comment j'ai profité
Toutes ne font que souligner
La rondeur de mon corps
Les courbes qui y sillonnent
Pour toi, mon amant
Des coins de repères
Pour guider tes doigts
Le long de mon corps
À savoir si à les toucher
Tu sauras me faire frisonner



Strechmarks
You are saying a wonderfull tale
My tale
Of becoming a woman
Those of my hips
Are saying that my body
Is ready to accept life
Those of my breast
Say how much
Did I grow
All are only emphasize
The roundness of my body
The curves that are furrowing
For you, my lover
They are markers
To help guide your fingers
Across my body
To know if by touching them
You would be able to make me shiver

    Ooo! Shivery is right. This is very sensuous. I especially love:
    "The curves that are furrowing
    For you, my lover
    They are markers
    To help guide your fingers"

    outstanding Jill!
    loved this:
    "For you, my lover / They are markers / To help guide your fingers / Across my body"

    brilliant method of taking something we ALL are self conscious about and turning it around to reflect beauty.

    Oooh I can total relate that. The stretch marks on my belly remind me of my children. How much strain I was put under to have them, how much I love them.

    Great job. My poem is up now too.
