That Which Is

lift the veil
of pseudo melancholy
from this dismal canvas
for the raven sings
his courtship song
and she,
freshly bathed,
preens coquettishly

she frolics
to amuse him
 flirtatious harlequin
with raven wings
to behold

  8. Enchanting poem about flirting, "raven sings"... "raven wings"..., is it the male or the female who conquers?
    Men are so coquettish nowadays! :), modern peacocks. Most of them conquer to make love and then forget. Women conquer to be loved and then forgive. Well, it belongs to the past for in modern societies genders are changing their traditional roles at work and at home. Women are becoming more and more masculine and men are becoming more and more feminine.
    Maybe in the future hermafrodites will rule the world., who knows...?

  9. Thank you Dulcina for your lovely comment, made me chuckle :) Men do seem to be a little twee these days :)
    Traditional roles, family values, everything seems to be changing maybe there is something in the water? :)
    Big Hug xx
