Mystery of a Woman


Mystery of a Woman

I look into her eyes and see the

Vast expanse of the summer skies,

I’m just another fool wondering

Of the mystery behind those eyes,

I follow from a distance,

Afraid to take from the tree and eat

Of the fruit that will make me see,

It’s strange what the sight of a woman

Can do to the soul of a man;


She rises with the dawn of day and

Breathes deep the crisp morning air

As the morning light illuminates

Her soft and lovely hair,

Then she smiles and I see

The sun shining before my eyes;

She stretches and walks toward the sunrise,

She gives me a long, deep gaze

And I see a Blue Iris standing alone,

Shining above a field of beauty;


Her voice is the breeze blowing over

A sea of blue and I can hear her

Laughter as the waves come splashing

Upon the virgin shore on a

Fresh spring day,

A rainbow glows above my head;

I hear her name whispered as the

Sparrows take to the air behind me,

I see her tears on the dew sparkling

Upon the spider web as the sun

Shines over this newly lighted land;


She touches me and I feel the magic of

This world tingling down my spine;

In her face and upon her delicate,

Smooth skin (like the placid cloud

Sailing in the warm color of the sky),

I can see the mysteries of the

Universe laid before me;

I run my hand over the grass blowing in the

Midday wind and I am filled with her light,

Her truth, the meaning of my life;

The secret of love is carried on her scent,

Her beauty rises far above

The words I write about her;


I try to fill her needs and my name is fool,

I try to show her my soul and I am blindness,

Stumbling through the light;

I let her feel my heart so weak and my

Tears fall as I kneel in the dark,

I try to love her with all my strength,

But I’m just a man;


She is woman,

The mystery that man loves her for . . .

The fire of life glows in her eyes,

She holds the temptation of truth in her hands,

See the wonder of the world

In everything she touches;


She is the wind blowing through my hair,

The dreams spinning in my head,

The lightning playing upon my soul,

I swim in the sea of her love

And dance in her rain as she quenches

The thirst of man and watch in wonder

As life springs forth from her womb . . .

I kneel in worship as she bears this world

Of man on her ever strong shoulders;


Now I reach for this tree

And taste of the fruit and see . . .

I see the beginning of another mystery . . .

I think your poem is lovely and I believe this is how most women would wish their men to see them. Thank You for the value you place upon us.

It sounds like the girl next door! This is a long but interesting poem. It carried me smoothly until the end as I looked for more of this "truth" (understood well by men) about the magic moment of looking into a woman's eyes. Thanks for sharing!

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
