how do patches of dark and light

that lean and subtle lines divide

depict such beauty, noble, proud?


distracted look that's foggy, veiled,

no more than strokes of light and shade,

yet all too real to fascinate...


and though it's only ink and space

I delve into your mystic grace,

I fell into your lovely face.

Also I'm adding this to my favorites. It is such an easy pleasurable piece to digest. Love it,! :)

Oooh this one was delightful and flowed so well! Very good.

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
