Ice Sculpture

Updated on January 01, 2010

 So still
So temporary
Did he carve your breasts
With love
Shape your lips
That he would never kiss
Drape the chaste frozen sash
Across your nakedness
In deference
To your modesty?
When he roughed you out
Of the solid crystal blocks
Did he love you then? 
You are so
Translucently pure
I can see through you
Yet you reflect
Me

      Wow. What a beautiful meeting of mediums. I was drawn in immediately. I think I have it memorized, I concentrated so hard.

      Oh by the way, love the new profile pic.

      Thanks Frieda! On both counts.

      Any poem that gets the reader thinking is a poem that works. Thanks so much, Storyteller!
