Nude in Mirror


    Full with new life
this natural woman
    all woman
in black hose
snug on smooth firm thighs
her belly rounded

this sensual woman
    all woman
offering a view
of swollen breasts
filling in anticipation

this knowing woman
    all woman
confident in her power
the promise of motherhood
a reflection of beauty
