So graceful are the Ladies of the Vale
Spires ever reaching stealing your moon
Elaborate carving turns my eye
One can only marvel before passing by

NO….But it’s a great work of art by Georgia Peskett titled “The Greatest”
I snapped this thru the window of the ‘take to art gallery’ in Lichfield

Shrewsbury such a magic place!

“His Mermaid Dame” dedicated to Spanks (Happy Valentines early!)

surrender inhibitions to the wind
my enigmatic lover coos
melting sealing wax on envelopes
what does one have to lose

a petal pusher of fine silk
quilting threads once quite bare
a blushing grape, a winery
squeezing all my wicked wares

he’s my tailor and my sailor
my ship and anchor too
I’ll set sail at once upon the sea
his mermaid dame to woo

a passion play of trickery
plunging into deep desires
bathing luxury of wryest wit
and red hot molten fires

be gone the dowdiness of blue
a shade I no longer care to wear
a citrus orange or tangerine
perhaps they’ll stop and stare

my reflection is a shining star
jumping off the pearly moon
gliding across the milky way
whistling a snappy tune

no longer in a sea of glib
a rainbow coat I’ll knit
if I can be your ever last
and you can be my grit

for lovers on a ship set sail
in passions murky waters
we’ll be on course for ever more
creating sons and daughters
