She Strums Her Soul

Lowering her eyes
she strums her soul in quiet
contemplating truths

a slim and long neck
with drum-like rounded body
connects the Geisha

breath and innocence
of playful innuendos
teasing all seasons

she chants of flowers
bringing beauty to the heart
as a song of love

  1. I love the expression on her face — I’m only learning to draw, so I’m always in awe of someone who can really get the essence of the human figure. Very nicely done.
