Waiting for release

I am nothing
to look at
or even consider
for I am just
the simplest
of humble vessels
unadorned by
fancy, fake trimmings
perhaps, not even
worth your second
yet, I am ready
patiently waiting
for you –
your revered
silhouette -
to pass by
to ponder
to come
and pick me
untie me
release me
so that I
may sail you
to destinations
that belie these
mirrored waters
I will deliver you
to exquisite sunsets
perfectly painted
in sumptuous hues
of prurient purple
I will drift you to the
edge where euphoric
pink blush
dips ecstatically
into rich, ripe rouge
before dissolving
sated, satisfied
into the calming coolness
welcoming the lull
of deeply

I was put to the challenge of adding words to this exquisite image by Just G
I am hoping that the words will even remotely live up to the splendor of the image…

    I have walked through a garden of flowers and looked twice at only one and that one I picked to put in a vase on my table which brought beauty into my home. I have taken a second glance and saw you……………….you write so awesome….Mark my words……

  • Aaaah, Mark…you melt my heart with such blossoming feedback! (did you pick a sunflower, perchance?) …and yes, I got the play on "Mark"ing your words, too…so witty your are! ;-)
    I always appreciate your popping in to check out my work, thank you for taking the time! xxx
