The grace,

The beauty,

And the power,

Of diver, Matthew Mitcham.

Lusting Flesh and Stone

The ancient masculine beauty captured in Barberini's Faun ,

Is displayed today in living flesh,

Beauty transfered through time,

Both in flesh and Barberini's stone.

Lusting Kaleidoscope Eyes

Upon viewing the work of Richard Taddei I was reminded of
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by the Beatles.

Picture yourself in a boat on a river,

With tangerine trees and marmalade skies.

Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,

A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

Lusting Sea Sirens

Many tales of the sea contain visions of beautiful sea sirens,
impossible to resist. Odysseus had himself tied to his ship's
mast so that he could hear their song. Luckily, viewing
the sirens below will not require such preparations.

The entries below are evidence of my assertion.

The last entry is my interpretation of the metomorphosis of Narcissus.
