To Be In Awe Of A Woman, - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

To be in awe of a woman,
The fragrance of sunlight upon her hair,
The way her voice finds resonance within the core
Of your being,
The way the mind sees the beauty of her face
Even while meditatively walking a sunless street,
Her mysterious and penetrating eyes
That seemingly pre-date human existence
To find the seed of eternity.

Everyone must find heroic meaning and purpose
For his sojourn on earth,
Somehow write his history in the stars
And declare I was happily here
For a brief and wondrous moment of joy,
That I saw the woman that painters and art museums
Attempted to capture on glorious canvases
But marvelously failed,

I also failed with every written line to express
The fragile breath-like vision of splendor that I witnessed,
The supernatural power of the feminine essence,
But I saw the entrancing woman and my heart made homage.

    This is truly beautiful Uriah. Reading some of your poems I can almost hear Art Garfunkel 'I only have eyes for you' playing in my mind. Same gentle romance, same feeling. (Report) Reply
