I am sensuality’s prodigy
A woman full of the petals
Of desire’s charms
Curvaceous and tantalising in many ways
Varied we are
Our frames and structure
rainbows of ebony’s hues and
Stark white of pearl to dusky cream
slender and tall
Short and robust
Long and elegant
Small and slender
Yet we are all one in the spirit
I am all of them, I am none
I come in many different guises
Yet you often fail to see
The tiny pot of treasure
Which heaves with abundance
The golden purse
of my heart and soul
So come, visit me
And gaze at the petals of love’s unconditional grace
And sit by my side to experience
the warmth and desire to care for and nurture
for it is my strength, our strength
which defines who you are
and which holds this sometimes grieving world
