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.

This is absolutely lovely, thank you!

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! :)

    I think Night inspires Rylsky to rise above his run-of-the-mill, ordinary sets. This set exhibits so much more creativity than most of his sets. Much more variety of shots and angles and very little repetition.

    I'm so glad she's back. She's MA's top model, bar none.

    I wanted to like Agatha before... and I'm kind of amazed at how much I want her this time. The location, posses, hair style, and hair color are all improved. I'm ready to spend some quality time with Agatha.

    My first thought was, has Arya always been this gorgeous? She flips from being a self-aware femme fatale one moment to a girl next door the next, and she's a knockout either way. Relaxed, confident, happy to be herself.

    Comparing this set with previous ones, I think that Luca simply knows how to bring this out. The set is vivid, the colors pop, and Arya gets into a zone where she's very charismatic. Pale skin against a pale background is not at all the same thing, and it's exactly the right kind of light for her. And it's a nice feeling of rapport, Arya playful, spontaneous, and engaged, focused without seeming static or overdirected.

    Mind you, all glamour all the time would quickly get boring, and I also liked Deltagamma's set with Arya, which is more laid back and character oriented. While I'm not enthusiastic about Antonio Clemens, he did show Arya's flexibility, and full points for that.

    Acknowledged! don’t worry, I will also be mostly busy traveling and shooting and when you are back I hope there will be several sets to watch and comment.
    In case I have no more sets in June before you leave let me wish you pleasant, relaxing and inspiring holidays!
    A presto!

    Much like Dido A, Melena has always been pretty but to me, she's getting more beautiful with age.
