She is haunting music
lilting melody of a summer night
and soft whispering gossamer wings
of fragile butterflies in flight~

She is a night blooming rose
whose fragrance dances on sultry air
captivating him with her
mysterious essence of myrrh~

She is the dark temptress
with fiery wild tresses
soothing his soul with her caresses.

  1. “She” is many things, all mysterious, all beautiful, all elusive to a coarse grasp. It’s odd how potently such a destructive thing as fire can also caress and soothe…your last lines are my favorite. Thanks so much for joining in on the Friday 55.
