Theme: Nudism

Naked

Naked
Bare trees
With no
Leaves

Naked flora and fauna
With various species
Of animals, fish, birds
And bees

Naked bare bodies
With no clothes

All these
Varieties
We get to
See indoors
And outdoors

But the trees
We venerate,
Naked wild life
We also don't
Derogate or
Deprecate.
But naked men
And women, we
Ridicule and denigrate.

All are the
Creations
And products
Of the same
One and only
Our revered -
Mother Nature

But our perceptions
Differ as per our
Learning, conditioning,
Upbringing, society and
Pseudo-culture.

Naked trees
Gain our
Respect.

Naked bare bodies
Of men and women
Are often seen with
Disgust and Disrespect.

It's you, me and us,
We all have this
Dysfunctional disconnect.
