Innate Sense

the modern labelled beauty
is far fetched from
the ancient admiration

visitation of historically
breathtaking iconic beauty
Aphrodite of Knidos
brings comfort to
my inadequate sense
of self image

I confess
I was sucked into
the velocity of
barbie fashion
while completely neglected
the natural God given
sense of appreciation

here
let’s cheer again
for her multifaceted
beauty

Praxiteles – statue of Aphrodite Knidos

Perfection

He is
warm like the winter sun
displays affection in abundance

He is
grounded like the strong roots
carries the life source

He is
transparent with his feelings
exhibits vulnerability

He is
gifted with a wicked sense of humour
shines through a beautiful mind

He is
self aware in quiet confidence
respects others with upmost integrity

He is
undeniably
perfect!

Calabash

calabash
your pale beauty
hidden in a luscious emerald screen
your smooth ivory skin reflected off
the cobra blue moonlight

I run my warm fingers on your valley curves
along your spine as celo playing hauntingly
monsoon rain moistens my tongue
feeding the starvation in me

my hunger eyes and barren lips
no longer self contained
charging unshackled to shake you
off the cord
