The lady holds the world -
her face, her body, her presence inspire artists;
challenging craft to match exquisite beauty,
not one flaw that does not lend to the lusciousness
of her perfection.
In dance she moves
poetry she speaks
music she feels
film she lives
painting she pauses
and sculpture she is
a fountain of femininity from whom manhood is drawn;
loving tenderly those who give all their living
and would die rather than not be her lover.
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
I wrote The Model in about 1990 based on all the beautiful models I had seen and real women in my life. Celebrate Donna Africa, my fellow poet and model and more.
Most of my life I have resided in Jacksonville, Florida. Currently I live in a senior community downtown.
I have written poetry since I was young.
