Guest Post by Liz Casey

Please welcome my great guest blogger Liz Casey! Liz is a multi-talented woman with a big heart.

She sent me some of her poetry to post and she is an amazing poet and I’m honored to have her here. In her own words here is a little bit more about this amazing woman. She has been kind enough to send me enough poems to post every Thursday this month. Please give her a warm welcome as only my readers can do! Thank you so much.

Liz Casey:

I’ve been a widely published poet and freelance writer and editor and have appeared in lots of mags and rags across the US. My book-length poetry chapbook, Breaking the Sacred was published in ‘98 by a small press, Angelflesh Press, in Grand Rapids Mich. I currently work full-time as a Sr. Technical Writer, and I run a Motorcycle Touring Company for women, Biker Babe Tours, in Sedona, AZ. I also blog about body issues, size acceptance, self-esteem, and body love at BigBodyBeautiful.

The Stone of Love

pressing my hands against it

the cool rock pressing back

its slow breath

climbing up my arms

its ridges in my skin;

its language decoded

thinking about how you

first grabbed my wrist

one quick movement

that set the world

on end

opened the sun

inside of me

decoded my language

as I slide across the cool

old rock and lay open

to the sky

the stone now

pressing at my back

entering me there

then, you, swimming up and

laughing as you grab

my wrist (again) and pull me

in on top of you.
