Poem: Nude with Flowers 

Nude With Flowers

I found the painting exciting
and like everyone else thought he was
a great artist
but then I thought
how could you ruin a girl
with flowers a smooth skinned
girl naked with long stemmed flowers
a smiling dreaming naked
girl cradling long deep throated
lilies her hair dark her
skin white the rose tipped
lilies in her hand
fragrant on her arm it was just
what it was there could be no duality of
vision which makes painting great
no aside no hidden
gem it was
simply a lovely naked woman
standing with flowers a naked dreaming
woman finally
you just have to close the book
