A Beautiful Mystery

Soulfully engaged with this mystery, I seek

Yet, the Proverbs hold the keys to a good life

With a woman, I say, beauty, be it vain, that runs off the roof

As of a late-night desert rain, charm as deceptive as a mirage of food

On a plate lost high upon the rolling vast plains, but still I say

“a woman who fears [loves] the Lord

Is to be praised.”

Otherwise, a man shall stare down a Jezebel

Throughout the days of his life.

If you should impregnate your thoughts without good sense

You will reap many difficulties.

A woman without makeup is to be praised.

Poetry is truth as we share our words that express our stories. I have been writing poetry over twenty years and have been published within many venues, including two books of mine. As poets we speak our truths and become known by our words. If you are a poet...keep writing. There remains joy and love in the solace of the written word.
