the dancer

by David R Spellman

she painted me a picture
with her smooth lines
and rounded curves
which my eyes could
not help but graze;
with oils glistening
all rouge and scarlets
left to contrast
with my blush

You speak volumes in a few lines. The last line really draws a vivid picture in my mind!

Subtle but revealing, like an intimate whisper. I like this.

Great job David, loved the line "which my eyes could not help but graze". As Quentin said, this says so much in so few lines.

Much is left to our imagination here, which I like. I also love the colors contrasting with your blush. This has a subtle sensual feel about it. Nicely done.

Excellent combination of colours Dave, easily forming a clear picture on the canvas of the mind.
