For Kristen Brownell
Poets worship beauty between rhymes too
Ethereal – they diminish quickly
When delivered by those praising a muse
On pages stained with verse impolitic.
‘Tis certain heaven abides in the way
A body moves – that holy temptation
Created as breasts jiggle and hips sway –
Enticing mortals to risk damnation.
Though attraction is oft’ obscured by sight –
Passion fueled by the lust for short-lived grace –
Love can flourish between shadow and light,
Binding two forever as souls embrace.
Not seeing, I find what my eyes neglectHidden in the truth of your silhouette.
