Friday Poetic Pondering
Through the ages, there’s been no end of paramours,
Temptresses, seductresses, and lovers all,
Many too many to mention,
Granted each their individual moment in history,
And noted in passing by their adoring men.
But the truly glorious women –
Sensual, sexual, sexy, unique,
Well possessed of uncommon beauty and intellect,
Able to change their world just by being in it,
Such women have always been rare.
“The face that launce a thousand ships”,
So they sang of Helen of Troy,
Theseus stole her, Paris died for her,
Agamemnon won her,
And the Greeks sailed home victorious.
Cleopatra ruled Egypt, taunted Rome,
This dark queen of the Nile
Seduced Caesar, bedded Marc Antony
Swayed the fate of nations
She chose an adder’s poison over domination.
Joan of Arc: more legend than life?
Did she love as she fought, or
did she deny all pleasure
for her passion – la France?
And Mona Lisa – her smile, mysterious and faint
as from a secret shared with Leonardo alone,
has moved kings and pirates to possess her.
Today she lives yet, immune to time,
worshipped by millions.
And you, exquisite one, do you see yourself
here among these ageless jewels
and the few others like them? Are they your sisters?
Where will you go, what will you do,
what will you become, Passion’s Prize?
Your healed life starts with one step...
