Posed with poise

Just so

Precious as a porcelain cameo

Singular beauty

Windswept shorewalker

With an eye for the divine

Wistful horizon looks

Imagining the beyond

Beyond reach

But so tantalizing near and fully realized

Obsessing was never so much fun

Unrequited love is still love

And so hard to fall out of

  1. Wow. Fantastic. Love the last two lines.

  2. Thanks – for once it’s not about me but those last few lines means I can’t dedicate it publicly to a friend of mine.

  3. Your words are just magic David! Love it!
