'I Could Love Him'

Written by: Broken Wings

His eyes engage me Certain, calm, intense His identity, unknown ~ Aristocratic is his demeanor ~ Suggested by his sword So ornate and beautiful His fashionable clothing ~ So utterly impeccable and perfect ~ He is not young, nor old Long dark hair that waves A black jacket, lacey cuffs ~ O, how his lips smile at me ~ His face beckons to me His soul captures mine I think, I could love him ~ And I am lost, within the frame ~ Ekphrasis November 27, 2012 Inspired by the painting, Portrait Of A Gentleman By Bartolome Esteban Murillo, 1670 National Gallery of Canada
