|Statue in one of many lovely gardens at Middleton Place, SC|
like a goddess,
beneath moonlit branches,
even morning's mist
hesitates to come close,
but within her perfectly
sculpted breast, she longs
for a loving touch, satin sheets
and a reason to blush.

This is for Imaginary Garden with Real Toads "Artistic Interpretations" which is a challenge I am hosting over at the Garden for today, Friday, April 12th.
All the abstract artwork for this prompt is by my daughter, Chelsea Bednar. Please hop on over and take a look at the numerous abstract pieces that are the focus of the poetic challenge.
The ideal is to tap into the feeling of abstract pieces, but this is an example where I always want to "see" images in the abstract art I view. In the above painting, I see a red headed woman with her body sideways upon the pillows, her "backside" toward the viewer, legs tucked under satin sheets, seductively reclining upon a fluffy pillow ...
I hope to be back with a second poem, a truly "emotional" piece.
I am also tying this in with The Mag #163, this week's gorgeous image below:
