In homage of my Mistress in White

She calls

I am beckoned

not brooking refusal

she bids me bring my instruments

laying across my desk

i cant hold out for long

she commands I lay my thoughts bear

my pen trembling with thoughts unexpressed

i shudder at the desecration she has in mind

poluting the white of her page

with things not so sacrosanct

she giggles at me

with a rustle from a sudden breeze

the empty page isn't that innocent

seducing me as she does

must count for something.

So I labor ardently

seeking to be worthy of the favor

the sacred and intimate art

of writing.

She draws us in, teasing us with promised riches. Will we ever learn that swords really are mightier?

How do you do that? Take ordinary words, and arrange them into something splendid, fascinating, and ardently appealing!

Someday, I hope to be able to write like that.
