Natural Beauty

Day 21 prompt: nature

 

He says I’m a natural beauty

 

blinking eyes sleepy and red

sporting really bad bed head 

 

ripples and rolls and flaws galore

all in view through glass shower door

 

He says I’m a natural beauty

 

sweaty after a walk and weights

oh my god my shoes aren’t mates

 

ponytail and baseball cap

hurried snack crumbs in my lap

 

He says I’m a natural beauty

 

just washed my face

no make-up in place

 

missed appointment yesterday

all my roots exposing gray

 

He says I’m a natural beauty

 

tear-stained cheeks

with mascara streaks

 

after one of those days

my tired brain’s in a haze

 

He says I’m a natural beauty

 

snuggled in for the night

when he pulls me in tight

 

resting in his strong embrace

finding kind love in his face

 

I feel like a natural beauty
