Genuflection on a Woman’s Back.

by Vince Vanguard Vainglorious

As you stride by, I close my eyes to behold you before you pass into memory
I stare at the sun and your flawless silhouette leaves an onyx impression 
against the clouds silver lining
As you pass into my vista, I try to capture the image of your glistening muscles 
and the symmetry of their perfection
The same back that supports the universe adorns a pink flowered sundress 
and transforms it into a beautiful tableau
You have carried the troubles of the world there, 
your own sorrows too as well as innocent babies and strong men
I yearn to caress your opalescent skin with balms 
and anointments fragrant oils and ointments to sooth your divine soul
