Photograph of you

How can one be in love with an image?
Although sultriness oozes from within
it is only a glossy photograph.
Yet it is the moment frozen in time
a moment of magic captured forth with
that intrigues this imaginary mind,
yet no matter what the mind calculates
the image is one of sheer loveliness!

Very lovely write that makes me think she is one very beautiful lady :) --- also I want to thank you Harry, for always dropping by my poems even if I am not active here-- seeing your name puts a smile on my face, thank you for all your support- it is a privilege for me that you read my poems, and for the one that you faved, thank you!

    Harry, this is definitely a Micheal-angeloian or Leonardo-davincian image... What image could it be that hold your imagination to ransome? Great piece... Love... Angel

    The photograph from this poem must be one of someone very special. A captured memory frozen in time.
