beauty: in pieces. Part Three.

they are scattered
like little brown stars
across the bridge of your
nose, your cheeks, your
shoulders. little tiny
marks of imperfection
holding in them,
everything – to me –
that is girl. everything
– to me – that is
beautiful.

being near your
face, is being
lost in space.
a Spring shower
of lightly dotted skin.

  1. I really like your phrase “scattered like little brown stars”…what a wonderful way to express freckles….and how tenderly you express your love…a joy to read.

  2. there is so much beauty in this; i think i like it best of the four pieces. the “little brown stars” is a lovely allusion, tho, as somewhat freckled myself, i slightly object to the term “imperfections”!

  3. “everything ā€“ to me –
    that is girl. everything
    – to me ā€“ that is
    beautiful.

    being near your
    face, is being
    lost in space.”

    swoon. so lovely.
