Shed your inhibitions and give this a read - dare to dream "outside the box"!



Took 42 years to discover

The most natural and wonderful gift

Given us by Mother Nature

To get naked outdoors


To let the sun warm all of me

To feel the ocean caressing my skin

To see every body as a work of art

To no longer envy the birds


I had to shed ever so much more

Than mere clothing for

Society clothed my mind in morality

Absurd and resoundingly rejected now


Let me see you as you are, as nature intends

See me as I am, as nature intends

Judge me not on appearance any longer

Know my heart, know my soul better


(c) 2005 Rose Limongi

Let me see you as you are, as nature intends
See me as I am, as nature intends

Love is here, I can sense it!

Excellent poem and how true, but only to those who have dared and found true freedom.

Well I wonder if Adam and Eve had never took a fig leaf what would the world be like today? Have always looked at a person heart as that truly will tell what the person is like for real instead of their body or clothes. As old country boy for sure have done plenty of skinny dipping in my life and enjoyed the natural feeling. Rose glad you found this peace with being natural as your write really shows how and what you found. May you continue grow in life as well as your writing,
Opps got little wordy here but you know me LOL.

What I used to attribute to shyness and false modesty, I now beleive is just clutching to a sense of privacy denied me growing up in a large family. Old habits die hard. But oh to have that sense of freedom! Envy those who are so at ease with their bodies. You go Rose!

I am in full agreement, Rose. I abhor clothing particularly in summer. Thank you for sharing the freedom. Love and peace,

It's what we call total expression of ourselves, and we should always be willing to challenge and push the norm and accept, to be a total, living human being
Very expressive and fluid composition Rose
Reviewed by Sage Sweetwater 3/11/2006
Avoiding the questionable and shunning the unknown puts one in a box, and they become psychological barriers that prevent one's own personal fulfillment, as well as excitement! Exploring the unknown, the naturist side of Rose's poem lets us free ourselves and try new experiences. Eliminate some of the sameness and routine in your life, that way you won't choose that mythological breakdown if you add a little spice of uncertainty to your life.! Great write, Rose! Keep them coming!

To get naked outdoors

Been doin that very same thing since I was a young lad at the old skinny dipping quarry - marvelous - makes one truly feel free. Now I like to skinny dip in northwood lakes in the moonlight.

Too cool here to traverse the woods in the nude,
Too cold in the ocean to that way swim,
Nightmares the world would have if I did so,
Therein then I would prefer not to of myself show off,
I think that that may be way altogether to rude...;) Ed
