IRRESISTIBLE - Two Sketches

IRRESISTIBLE – Two sketches Bella Donna At distance She had beauty of form – A kind of neutral simplicity Which added perfumed color To those surround Closing on subject One might notice a slight pink rush On her blossom face A deep emerald glow Striking the eye The meeting is sudden One yearns to touch Ah but to kiss Would be sorry for A poison heart stains that loveliness POPPY Her dress is varied – A mixed confusion of inner colors Detracting from those not lesser charms - The lemon creamy fringes The central ebony and peach flares Blend to focus an oval black beauty With laughing lips And a will to be loved Dave Austin *Inspiration thanks to Georgia O’Keeffe’s flowers

Amazing,"audaciously sexual and innately feminine,", the iris resembles a woman's reproductive organs. Always enjoying your writes Daver! They take us away from the ordinary to where we can be introduced to the unknown. Keep well and be safe. Love, Mikki

Daver an amazing job of juxtaposing flower and woman i.e. 'two sketches' and of course two poems to boot...lol! It is my opinion as always that your poetry is as good as it gets. This is exceptional poetry. I read many poet laureate. The supposed best of the best. My dear friend you are right up there at the top of those lists. You have a God given talent. I feel blessed that I can read these treasures. A Fav. Love, armand.
