Magpie Tales #135 "Venus"

Venus and the Sailor, 1925, by Salvador Dali
Venus

Seduction 
arises from the sea
upon gilded oyster shells
answering many a sailors' prayers.


by Margaret Bednar   9.16.12 


This is for THE MAG #135 - check out all the amazing poets! (weekly photo prompt is at the top).  This is a poem I reworked and I think I like it better.  Thanks, Tess, for the weekly challenge.

and... Venus on a half shell...
