For those who need awakening.

The Awakening of Venus

Paint me.

Take your finest brush

Dip it into that cup of ice water

And paint

Geometric figures;

Concentric circles;

Stars and swirls.

Now for the wide, soft brush—

Use the warm water this time

And paint

A pelican swooping towards sea;

A hawk diving for its prey;

A burning hot meteorite

Headed toward earth…

Where will it land?

And what

Will it set on fire?

There is a sensuality in this that makes me shiver

elegant and sensuous, this is lovely invitation, beautifully written.

I did and I thank you. I love the "wide, soft brush and warm water."

This is both clever and beautiful! Such a creative perspective and gorgeous images. And it reads so smoothly.
