Iridescence and subliminal flow has condensed within your fragrant bower,
a scene of isolated beauty that portrays the essence of all splendour and redeeming 

You are repose and renewal to my longing soul
which in hunger for such a sight could have stayed unrequited still!
barren and with plighted role unto my desperate ill.

Now seen suffused in the radiant glow of you, like mirrors
are placed  surrounding flowers inset in your resting place or in bunches, 
frieze like and still, are coloured floral showers.

They experience no passing hour, in lilac clad repose, you gift this domain
with abundant russet locks a’ spray in a cascade of feral purity
shining vibrant gleams, diaphanous and serenity proclaimed.

You exude ephemeral and delicate majesty in coalescence 
with this limpid mystic scene, pure spiritual visions profound combine 
with siren-like illusion seen.

Desire calls as from traces etched on heavenly walls,
reflected pinions fan-like show through emerald hued illumination
in subtle sweeps below the surface of this inviolable creation.

Footnote: I have written this piece for the Reflections contest by Constance La 
France. This is a fictional write and I ascribe none of the above attributes to the 
scene or character names, these same attributes belonging solely to Yahwah, the 
one God manifest as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    Joe, I can't find one of yours I haven't read. Are you taking a break? I do love Joyce very much. She truly inspires me and many others here and she has so much talent. Love, Carolyn

    Belated congratulations on your win, Joe. You know I was away for a while. We never know what judges are going to like when we write for their contests. I think that adds to the fun of composing for them, don't you? It's a hit or miss most of the time, but you definitely had a hit here! WAy to go, Joe. Love, Carolyn
