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

And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
