Her name is. . .

.

She strides with a regal pose

Dreadlocks trail down her backside.

Highlights of copper and gold

weave throughout her crown.

Her physique taunt and limber

like that of a dancer.

She bathes in Frankincense and Myrrh.

The glow of olive oil illuminates her ebony skin.

No catcalls follow her along her journeys

for men are breathless by her aura.

Young and old love her the same

the young see the child within

the old garner strength from love she sends.

Cypress trees bow to touch her lips.

Weeping willows encircle her in tender limbs.

She leaves every place better than before her presence.

Her name, you ask. . .

Her name is, her name is, her name is

Beauty. . .

Most people know Jackson Pollock for his splash type paintings.  But early in his career Pollock who was part of the Art Students League of New York created more structured abstract artwork.  Look in the lower left corner do you see the drummer?

Fashion is personal.  Some mix plaid and polka dots and others dress monochromatically   Whatever your preference  your choice in clothing helps to set your identity.
