Wing Of Desire

From your woman body
Like a wing was born my desire
It grew from your body entire
From your feet to your hips
From your light waist
To your shoulders spring
Like a wing was born my desire
It grew from your body entire.

You might consider adding a couple of lines to cover the beauty of her face. Desire finds its true force in the eyes.

Lovely write. Thank you.

You will notice there is no face. In most of my sculpture there is no head, or is represented in a very abstracted form.

@Eldovis I did notice the sculpture and assumed that it was the source of inspiration for the poem. Both are superb as they stand. I raised the comment merely as a suggestion that the poem might reach beyond and touch the real mystery of desire unto worship, that is our appreciation of the women we love.

@rcandlish I agree that desire, might find true force looking in the eyes, but that would required a different poem. Thanks for the comment.

@Eldovis You're welcome! Look forward to seeing/reading your future work.


What awesome inspiration!
