MAGPIE...Prompt #142

                                 CHARIS/ Lake Ediza, CA./ 1937/ Edward Weston

THANK YOU, Tess, at Magpie Tales.


Weston's Charis shows her face,
and my eyes are pulled
to that pretty gaze,
boys boots, girls tease.
I wonder which,
but then I spot the access,
the exit,
between her legs.

I was born from that canal.
I see the slit,
covered with layers of modesty.

Beneath the rough cloth,
folds of fine silk,
softest porn.

Great artists do more
than one thing at a time.
Manet's Olympia
looks my way,
then dresses to serve
with motherly grace.

Your perception is keen and your view unique. Appreciated.

Lyn, your poetry is bubbling up from a place so intensely private, so deep ... just keeps getting better and better (if that's possible.)

Your words, release the tension one might sense, by guiding us with an intense feeling of euphoria....while we seek the warmth between each word. Lovely write- this photo just begs for more!
