GEISHA


An exquisite Geisha.

From Japan, Asia.

Ladies in training,

Singing, Dancing, Entertaining.



Features are so delicate,

Hair long, black as night.

Show your might, accumulate,

Experience, Texture, Color, Light.

    I do not mean to offend anyone with that line about Asia. Geisha is synonymous with Japan and so I have made a change to that line.

    Thank you for pointing it out Veeraiyah and I apologize if you felt offended. (Report) Reply

    The comparison of Asia to a Geisha is something not very appropriate.Normally through entertainment, Geisha gets benefited, but foreigners come to our regions to see the profit. Then who is the Geisha here? (Report) Reply
