	Tanka 5
	you sit across the room
	velvet chair against your skin
	one of the Graces
	Beauty, Delight, or Blossom
	perhaps all three in the flesh

    Hello Jack, A very lovely and moving tribute to our fair sex. I loved this one. It made me smile and deeply inhale.... SMiles, Shar

    this is such a beautiful piece, so romantic and very moving... i just love the last line "perhaps all three in the flesh.." a brilliant way to end the piece...dis i mention how subtly sensual this is?...:) huggs
