Doyenne

silverfish finger figures,

caricatures of past presence,

while true essence

is scripted by the icy tails

of Comets

that trail their trains

along the cobblestone skies,

caressing creases

and sweeping pieces

of remembrance

into the dust-filled cracks.

.

the block is the attack,

compassion and gratitude

the inner kingdom exudes,

compelled to bend a knee.

for i know more

than i let you see,

internal hands weave mystery,

as i press my lips to the hips

of the inner rose.

i do not hide

from the scurrilous tide,

for in a guise of the small,

a queen resides.

Respect your outer woman to understand the inner feminine. Nature designed reciprocation.

    I love this:

    “the inner kingdom exudes,

    compelled to bend a knee.

    for i know more

    than i let you see,”
