A Taste of Karen Hery’s “Open Wider”

Karen Hery’s “Open Wider”

Some days it feels like

The whole world is my lover

And Nature . . .

She’s my best lover of all.

She comforts me with her breezes

And steadies me against the trunks

Of her trees

And you, all of you,

You are my lovers too

Whether we want to admit to that

To each other or not

Go ahead . . .

Look me fully in the eye

And decide whether or not it’s true
