the deep arch in her back
bending only for your eyes
long slender legs adorning
dazzling reds of sleepy sun
water reflecting a silhouette
silk soft like butterfly wings
his dancing waterlily, his love
trees purr to her able splendor
knowing he will be ever tender
with each move, his heart surrenders
the deep arch in her back

A wonderful poem dear Joni. Good morning from Michigan.
Thank you so much John. Is it warming up yet for you there? It is in the 80’s today. Especially beautiful in the am early.
