No Stranger to Beauty Revisited

24 Apr


No Stranger to Beauty


I am no stranger to beauty

It has thrilled me,

haunted me,

betrayed me,

pursued me,

evaded me.

It has danced wild with me

Through soft, velvet night.

It has lain gentle with me

In the quiet, silver dawn.


I am no stranger to beauty.

It has inspired me,

Calmed me,

Enraged me,

Tortured me,

Chained me.

It has walked easy with me

On golden summer days.

It has danced only for me

With urgent promise in its eyes.


I am no stranger to beauty.

But yours …

Brown eyed

And naked.

Pale skinned

and perfect.

Has taken my breath away.

It would seem an apt time to revisit this post today.  It was written the day after an extraordinary, unexpected, magical night with one of the sweetest. most beautiful women I have ever known,  It is almost exactly a year ago.
We will never meet again.

    I love daydreaming and getting lost in memories too.

      If I am totally honest, I posted more because it was a good excuse to read aloud a poem I like than for because I was daydreaming. Yet I agree, it is a joy to get lost in the past without regret.

      Ah, who knows – one day a faint blush may be encouraged across my face.. ‘Extremely sexy’ is a heady compliment.
