Written for Ermilia’s blog: “PICTURE IT AND WRITE”


The mirror of life 
ornamental ,
exquisitely  intricate,
reflection is

 distinct and clear,
you  glow
 the skin radiates
the milky white 
of scintillating cleavage  clear!

Alas ! The wondrous pattern 
of  life remains always hidden,
bedecked on your gorgeous back
it is a mystery forever...
neither it explicates 
the logic...
nor the reason of
getting allured...
beautiful butterflies 
fly and allude
trying to convey a message unclear!

 there's no mirror at the rear,
to exhibit 
the truth surreal
Paint a face of vibrant colors
virtually visible to every peer!
