Woman, how you portray
your complex essence and ambiguity.
You are a study of light
cast on the walls of your Self.
Shadows border your brilliance.
Your portrait is askew with flavors
that you offer to guests
enamored by your mystery
as you gaze into obscurity.
**Won third place in a local writing competition for this poem. My sister made a special image for it for this post.**
