The Three Graces; reflections

The Three Graces
Beauty, Joy, and Charm
linked in dance ...
if I were the fourth
what would be said of me?

  1. Tanka about sculpture. Awesome. Love the way art, nature, emotions, movement and dance and mythology are encapsulated in poetry. Very cool.

  2. I like the reflections present in both these poems!

  3. thanks, wendy - glad you find it cool!
    and thank you, jenny. a coincidence about the reflections; I noticed the same thing as I was posting them!

  4. Wonderful introspection in that first one! And I love the "leap" in the second!
