“In the Mirror”

softness     
gentles her face   
soothes away the old stress-etched lines   
            from her once pursed lips   
now she smiles   
radiant and relaxed   
her New Life lends   
            boldness to her laugh   
            confidence to her sensuality   
a glint of knowledge sparks mischief in her eyes   
experience strengthens her   
            steel wrapped in cotton   
subtle in her curves   
strong in her possibilities
