Quiet Musings
Skin And Bone
Between the skin and bone
is where amazing things take place
an ever changing masterpiece
that shows up on your face
Ideals of others, judgement, pain
between the skin and bone
resonate through every vein
and every thought we own
Virtue is an inside force
have patience on the path
there, between the skin and bone
comes beauty from the wrath
Within our hearts we search ourselves
'tis there we stand alone
and there, a brand new masterpiece
between the skin and bone
                           - Lynda McConnell

Context Notes: Self image is contained not on the surface but between the skin and bone. The adjustments of aging add wisdom to our beauty, eventually revealing the true source within.
