Rebirth of Apollo

Your muscular body glistened

As warm golden streaks of sun

Streamed down on you

You’re standing in the lake

In the level of your sinewy thighs

Where water is solemn and blue

As if your ember like body

Is dipped in the blue

To cool off the hotness within

Are you possessed

with the spirit of Apollo?

You bend your body

Hands stretched forward

Curved back

Ready for the dive,

Indeed you steal

The grace of his bow!

You fling your body

Towards the water

In an instant-

Waves rippled

From the center of you

Bullseye! everywhere you plunge.

Indeed you steal,

The accuracy of his arrow!

Now I’m convinced

That you are indeed

An embodiment of Apollo!

    Very alluring write that got my attention and held it..Keep the descriptive and expressive writes flowing from your creative pen..Thank for stopping by and commenting on my one word....It means gaining wisdom by comtemplating one's navel..Sara
