Softly the desert winds do whisper, her name
Scheherazade, in swirling words of eloquence, she recites
Enchantments tails, a mystical infusion of mysticism,
And mystique, is weaved by this storyteller of
Myths and legend.
In the bards imagination of thought, lies inspiration
Onassis, a fantasy realm of illusions, materializing as
A beautiful mirage, before the beguiling eyes of the
Draped beneath the canvas tents, in far off Arabia,
Seduction's mistress spins her loom, with intricate
Precisions perfection, illuminating intrigues tantalizing
Pleasures, as the canopies flaps blow freely, in
The breath of the night winds breeze.
A thousand and one, veils fall unto the sands
Of time, as loves mystic weaver, fashions silken
Robes of desire, written within every line spoken,
Forbidden erotica, dared shared between mortals.
Provocative enchantress, dancing with graphic
Designs decadence, wetting the appetite of
Royalties palate, leaving his majesty hungry
For a larger portion, of embellishments
Mysterious, exotic flavors offered unto him,
By his temptress of a thousand verses.
Flowing visions of motion, left floating in the
Air as if crystal castles built of smokes illusion,
Than evaporating, melting beneath the horizons
Setting sun, softly are crushed by the dawns rising,
Vanish at the first rays of light.
Queen Scheherazade, beloved wife of a tyrant king
Whom lost his heart, to a poetic charmers soothing,
Voice, a snakes flute played to calm the heated
Heart of lusts passion, never satisfied.
A single desert rose grows in the harsh land
Of the middle east, and it's name is beauty
Personified called by historical legend
As she known as Scheherazade.
Rarities precious petals are cast aside by
Times intervention, yet the sands remember,
And whisper her name, beckoning one last
Tender splendor's tail, but all is silent in the
Realm of this mystical enchantress, alias now
Scheherazade belongs to the ages themselves.
