Shedding skin

Shedding my skin
Vulnerable again
Fragile thin
Barrier between me
And my self

Coarse exterior
Whittled away
Leaving marks
Of time
Impact of place

Forever upon me
Tattooed beautifully
To observe
Life in diversity

Shaped by forces
Minute and magnificent
Bearing down on me
Degree in resilience
Within me
Trees of UTAS, Sandy Bay, lutruwita/ Tasmania
