Stealing Time For Being Naked – NaPoWriMo – 9

SONY DSCToday’s poem is a bit on the dark side. There is a dark side to naturism that needs to be acknowledged. Because our society has gone so far as to criminalize nudity including the threat of being placed on a sexual offender registry if someone is traumatized enough in seeing you nude, naturists are forced to go underground so-to-speak in order to steal some naturist time.


The door closes and
the house is now empty
a good time to remove
making sure to stay
out of window view
so neighbours
aren’t offended

Slipping out the door
with backpack
heading out to
a secluded clump of brush
where it it possible
to steal a few hours
of sunshine au naturel

Walking down the
disused railway track
out of town
away from homes
in search of a space
and place
to bare it all

An illusion of freedom

About A Naturist's Lens

I am a therapist that focuses on the use of active imagination, photograph, dreamwork and Jungian Psychology in order to uncover the whole person hidden beneath layers of personae, complexes and clothing.
