Unblushing Mentor

Monhegan’s Schoolteacher, 2004 by Jamie Wyeth

Cool night air from the island
softly blew through her window
wrapping itself around the mentor’s
exposed, sensitive skin, freeing her.
Moonlight danced between her book
to her inviting, unconcealed body.
She always felt so free and open
as she undressed, stripping away
obligations, of teaching, tight clothing.
Knowing the young men from town
came to watch her unveiling left
her feeling vulnerable and exotic.

  1. Nicely done Donetta. You've set the scene and mood so well with your words. :<)

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. This is wonderful as are the several others that I read. The perspective is unknown to me and powerfully conveys your message. This one is quite erotic which I really enjoy and the last line conveys such a visual dichotomy of the subjects feelings. “vulnerable and exotic” – excitement with trepidation.
