Nakedness in all of its beauty!

The term is widely used figuratively to convey the covering
up of an object that is embarrassing or distasteful (Adam and
Eve used fig leaves to cover their nudity)  -  Wiki

Nakedness in all
of its beauty as espoused
by those progressives

Tempered though by that
basic human decency
which gave the fig leaf

Art found acceptance
But decorum still expects
A covering up

A sultry lady
more appreciated when
covered decently

For Chev's CARPE DIEM #497 -  nakedness


  1. Still expects a covering up - nice! Great flow.

  2. I appreciate the courage and honest feeling that you have put into this post -
    All the best to you --

  3. i think there is beauty in the human body...i think there is a fine line between art and indecency though...and we have made beauty a commodity on many fronts...

  4. Hank,

    Nature provides a wonderful means of seeing the beauty in the raw form of items and perhaps bodies. I agree that coverings enhance our perception in many cases.
    Best Wishes, Eileen

  5. Coverings can lead to much more thought I think

  6. Decorum? Who needs decorum? (Just kidding, of course.)

  7. it is possible to feel naked in clothes

  8. Nakedness is often seen only in the watchers eyes.

  9. Awesome set Hank ... very nicely done.
