Daphne

There you stood,
Defining the very essence of beauty…
Unmoving…
As if posing with Apollo for Bernini.

Everything about you caused my heart to race.
Transcendent sensuality,
Delicate, flowering grace,
Attracting every ounce of my strength,
Drawing me beyond myself,
As the sun draws the morning from a sleeping world.

Stay here, in this moment,
Transform not.

Gift to me just one touch.
