Painters work with liquids on open surfaces. Sculptors free representations from unremarkable lumps. Writers use words to do the same. Their work is not displayed in galleries, but comes to life for each reader.
Their art appears different to all, but is no less precise, deliberate, and thought-provoking, at least, and impactful, in intent. These words are a brief portrait of Lisa in simple prose, with some verse, who is anything but simple in reality!
In form, her hair is dark, thick, and wavy and her eyes are large and brown
With complexion smooth, frame slender, and height slightly taller than most
She is pleasant to see and enjoys creating her very own bling
Lisa loves flattering designs though she does not flaunt nor boast
I met her through the alchemy of modern electronics and communications
A lady in the tradition of belles past and not unlike the one who loved Rhett
She was far from home, younger, searching, and wondering then…
Her close companion was a gray feline far more familiar than pet
Not surprisingly, she was raised in the land of the Iris and Tulip poplars
Her mother was a true southern beauty and her father was smart and lived near
It was said before her birth, by a forgotten carny, that she had a larger destiny
Her early childhood was somewhat challenged and difficult, but her intent was clear
Her years of youth and early adulthood were marked with change and growth
Hurts were shared with tears and lessons learned in ways hardest of all…
Still, like that fiery mythic avian she arose from her times and learned much
As an adult, she is focused and her poise self-assured; She knows her call!
When she speaks it is true and well of things both near and far removed
Her thoughts are filled with wisdom and depth from life lived and just half-started
She has a temper and is independent, but still has room to need and be needed
The sum of her to present is demure and direct with future paths yet uncharted!
