The Ruins: for Berenice

A poem inspired by Berenice in “Tholes

 

Here a Goddess lies,

her brilliance unmatched by the sun

 

Her perfect curves shadow the earth,

hiding the horizon from view

 

On the banks of the shores she lies,

resting her feet in the sand

 

Each glance of her glory and grace,

marks the day anew

 

Here a Goddess dances,

her grace unmatched by the wind

 

Her limber length stretched high,

as the air kisses her skin

 

She makes the thunderous skies glow,

with her epic smile

 

On the ruins of the earth she stands,

giving the sundered ground its purpose

 

Her ravishing ebullience beams through striking eyes,

making me drown beneath the surface.

Kat this is such a cool poem. Its just a bit like Homer, enough to bring out the sun and beauty in the middle of winter.

Thanks so much, Hirundo! I am humbled by your compliment. That's interesting that you mentioned Homer; his stories filled with countless men fallen to ruin over the love of beautiful women. Had Bernice been alive at that time, I'm sure she would have been the cause of the Trojan War.

Thank you, sweetie! I haven't heard from you in a while...how've you been? And yeah, I haven't written poetry in ages. I was looking at Bernice's latest set with her spread out on what looks like the ruins of a Greek temple. Then, I thought to myself, "Wow! This is not a human being, but a Goddess! ... The ground itself is lucky to hold her up." I had no idea what I was writing until it was finished, but it just miraculously made sense. I am so glad you like it. :)

Hello lovely! I am so grateful for your personal response. You're blushing? Omg...my hands are shaking just seeing your comment. Thank you for gracing us with your presence...which has inspired poetic inclinations to come out. Every word is heartfelt and meant to elevate you as the Goddess that you are! Have a wonderful day and thank you for making mine! :)

    A while ago I had a dream and in it I was sitting in a wheel chair in front of the Prado Museum in Madrid waiting for my escort who spoke Spanish. I was beginning to get impatient when up the steps came Lorena. She was dressed to the nines in a charcoal grey business suit. "I am your escort," she said. "I am very knowledgeable about Goya and Velasquez." Then she smiled.

    Reminded of that silly dream by the despicable carnage in Barcelona today, which is (I believe) Lorena's hometown. Damn racism and terrorism everywhere.

    I was stationed at Rota in Spain and can verify that those lyrics are accurate.

    Don't think so, although it would be a duck with good taste if it was perving over a Gloria photoshoot if it was :)
