She is
Dark and dazzling,
Beautiful and bewitching.

She is
the aura lingering in an enchanted garden.
Seen, yet completely unseen.
The treasure in your reach, yet untouched.

She is
Like a wildflower in the mountains of bees.

She is a river. Young men went down
to listen to the willows weep. They
never returned.

She is the subtle ingredient in every masterpiece.

She is Art.
