Lusting Beauty of Three

For such an odd number,

It has the ability,

To Balance,

And make more pleasant,

The image for our eyes.

Lusting Beauty . . .

Of Merfolk . . .The Mermaid

“A mermaid found a swimming lad,
Picked him for her own,
Pressed her body to his body,
Laughed; and plunging down
Forgot in cruel happiness
That even lovers drown.”

William Butler Yeats

Lusting Beauty of Regrets

Sorry Picasso,

But next to these, yours just sucks all the air out of the room!

Lusting Beauty of Humanity

The Art of Sacrevoir

When I look at the work of Sacrevoir,

I am not drawn to technical nuances of shading and form,

I'm not captivated by haunting scenery,

Revolutionary artistic leap or flashy colors,

I'm drawn to the infusion of the human experience and spirit into his work,

With seemingly effortless stroke of pencil or brush.

Lusting Beauty of the Nude . . .

Not Naked

When exactly,

Does the human form,

Devoid of clothing,

Change from nude to naked,

If it all.

Perhaps this will help:

Nakedness reveals itself.
Nudity is placed on display.
The nude is condemned to never
being naked.
Nudity is a form of dress.

-John Berge

Or perhaps, not.

Lusting Beauty of Serendipity

It was serendipity to be sure. I took a walk today in the warm breezes of coastal Florida.
My nose caught aromas that stirred memories inside of me from times long past, when summers were hot and there always seemed to be plenty of time to while away.

I was surfing the net later on and came upon
Cover Browser .

I found just the illustrations to convey those past summers to you!
