They stand naked

godiva-esque

adornments

stripped away

revealing bare

skeletal frames

denuded by bitter

northerly blasts

fully exposed to

winter’s variable clime

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Likewise am I

before all-knowing One

Whose piercing eyes

penetrate beyond

pretentious masks

far beneath

surface sheen

revealing deep

fault-lines of

hidden agendas

secret ambitions

dubious motives

~~~

Finding there is

nowhere to hide

no fig-leaf

righteousness

may I claim

to cover ‘real me’

I cast myself upon

tender mercy

and rise again

divine image

renewed
