The Sculptor

His chiselled arms coaxed the reticent rock
To hew out life as he soothed the stone
His gentle blows rang to ancient notes
Sounds of heaven threaded to creation’s dance

His thoughts caressed to sculpt her alive
Urging her softly to a hypnotic consent
Toiling hard in the enthralled union
The sculptor carved his poem in granite

Her long-eyed gaze came alive to arrest his tawny eyes
A helpless captive to her moulded perfection
Brooding darkly at her beauty and allure
He lost his soul to her in lone nights

Remains of time when insanity reigns
Reality playing ruse at a dark table
Haunted desires stalking a Creator
Driven to submission by his rage to create...

    I like the phrase "rage to create" -- putting violence next to creativity . . . it works I think because it identifies the battle inside -- two wolves -- one is logic and self-control the other creative, expressive, vulnerable. The pursuit, sometime obsessive, to create the perfect love. Loved the poem, my favorite so far of your works.

    Nope just participating with Charmaine and Becca. You have to read Becca's blog. You may want to join in on the fun. A big hug back to you.
