Agelessness wore the gracility of red ribbons
Adorning plush royal velvets with love.
Embellishing under platinum veils
tinted with white gold on copper’s pictogram
her garden loomed over wrought archways of jasmine
and flowery perfumes inside the prevailing breadth of destinies…
As tender rose petals leave a trailing scent to follow the moon
plump olive branches flourish with oil balms and ripe fruit…
Where coeternal essences are adorned within midnight’s quietude
…in stillness the heart speaks to the etherealness of the lost soul.
Offering the lucidity of love’s foreboding tenderness
her dissolving velvet disappears into everliving dreams;
And the shawl of foreshadowing silence echoes nakedly
into the divine afflatus birthing evermore the agelessness of love…
