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.

Damn, Kat, you're such a good writer, it shouldn't surprise me a whit that you're a great poet too!

This is absolutely lovely, thank you!

Thank you, sweetie! I haven't heard from you in a'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. :)

    If Charles Lightfoot married Natasha Schon, their kid would take perfectly exposed pictures. The big shame here is that his composition is usually very good. Why on earth he thinks that making the image quality look like crap makes it look good is beyond me. A clear, properly balanced exposure is not nice to look at? And, MetArt, why does it seem that the frequency with which a photographer appears on your site in inversely proportional to his or her rating? Does Charles own MetArt or do you not even bother to read the comments or look at the ratings? I've never seen a business where the voice of the customer means so little. Yeah, there are people who like him. But how many photographers are as maligned in the comments and ratings as he is yet he appears with great frequency?

    I've said this before, but it seems that Lightfoot is following Goncharov's moves in keeping the models from becoming totally nude. Ridiculous! You want art? quit fading out the shots and get creative!
