She appeared a veil of dreams
to the enigma of a chorus
in celestial notation
Her vibratory cipher
was an alliteration
and then Her whispered essence
draped in the dance of fabric stranded
on that most surreptitious land
the geometry of Her longing
the gentle mystery of hands
the rhythm of Her fullness
sloping soft into caress
the length of Her miracle
upon a linen dress
the mirage of Time undone
the affect of surprise
Her polyphony of hair
the startling novelty of eyes
the deity of passion
convulsive in its youth
the pastel wonder of the Moment
in the absence of half truth.
