Awakening Beauty

So long has she been sleeping,
within her dreamless nights,
forgotten were the scenes of
beauty. Having now been awoken
by the fullness of the moon,

she bows on bended knees whispering her response to Him

with pretty words.

Only her beloved will understand.

Time never fades when

love is forever an ember

that glows steady within

her heart, time immortal.

She stands, wrists bound.

Gently placed by His hand,

firm yet tender is his meter.

Between her hands she holds

but a single pure white lily.

It’s petals slender, velvet

to the touch, its fragrance

intoxicating ones senses.

she bows her head gracefully,

offering it to her beloved.

Silently she awaits His

command.
