Pure Beauty

Poem by Joni – Painting is “The Nymph of The Spring,” by Lucas Cranach the Elder 1540 in Germany

blades of olive grass salute her rare grandeur

fledglings move tenderly to offer new buds for scarlet hair

thousand-year willow oaks cultivate a canopy of cover

youthful rosy breast and curvy hips from God’s own palette

cerulean eyes sparkle and dance as she stirs slowly

God takes her slender hand as wings unfurl, still wet

smells rich with wonder, God gazes upon His creation, holy
