|Indeed the eyes of love do not
notice form, or much else -- Love
in and of itself makes one feel
young again! A beautiful Senryu.
Love and hugs,

|A beautiful write, a bit mystical and full of powerful imagery. Ah, the fountain of youth...hmm, I think happiness and staying active with a healthy diet helps one to maintain that youthful glow...a beautiful smile and that sparkle in one's eyes always attracts my attention...peace within sums it all up! A great write, very profound, lingers on one's thoughts. Bravo!

|A compelling link to the failed search of Ponce de Leon for the Fountain of Youth and the agelessness in the beauty you have discovered. Your eyes are absorbed and words speak of the true meaning of beauty, Butch, that ageless grace shining from within blinding you to those things we typically attribute to age. They say "love is blind" but you have seen her, if only in your dreams and she haunts you...occupies your mind...this gentle spirit/nymph who lingers between the moonlight and the dawn of existence. I have to agree with Lydi's observation in regard to love rendering the fountain useless.Then again, there are just some very lucky ones out there who garnered some incredible genes and take care of them. I'll add to Sage's advice with a touch of Wild Salmon and blueberries...my secret!
Such a well chosen preface too, Butch...I'm humming that melody as a background as I return to reread this fantastic Senryu.

|Botox-less beauty preserved by I think, love alone, one of Aphrodite's followers, nothing anointed from a jar, staying out of sunlight for long periods of time and a daily grape and fish diet, macadamia nuts and a wine fountain to sup - moderation - oh, those breasts! Orbs of youth to polish the enamel on your tooth - Plenty to feast on here, Butch...

|Greetings Butch! The sirenes song has long made the eyes of the mariner dream a little more in fantasy. I think since you live so very near to the Atlantic she has woven her mystery around you. Tell me more. I'm interested in the nymphs that frequent the shore.

|"why to she alone
was agerasia bestowed?
we may never know"
This senyru in particular touched me. The eyes of love do not see cellulite or wrinkles. In the eyes of love, the fountain of youth would have been useless! Exquisite love poetry! Lydi**
