Seeing you, I see the girl still,
Whose cornsilk hair flows through
fingers
Reticent yet sure, where fear
Of time no longer lingers.

In your widening glance, I see
light
Fall gently through morning mist
Upon the sullen, little lake,
Where we rode our bikes and
kissed.

When gall or blemish ignite
Disappointment's angry fire,
I see a young girl's impatience
With worlds too small for her
desire.

Time's a tireless artist. He's
left
His rifts, his scores, his
creases,
Reminding us that true beauty
Only changes, never ceases.

And who will contemplate time's
work
And in his lines see the girl
still?
Who will feel her heart beneath
lax
Flesh, fresh as a fledged dove's?
I will.

I LIKE this! Very, very evocative. Your imagery is great. 'His rifts, his scores, his creases' - lovely.

"True beauty only changes, never ceases"

I love it ... what an engaging story told here!

More, please?

Beautifully done, we too see the beauty.
