Exquisite – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

VJs Weekly Challenge – Taste

“…. true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.” Audrey Hepburn


The recipe was not lost,
simply one off,
never to be repeated, 
just one pinch of shyness,
a sprig of humour,
some joy generously added,
an abundance of love
layered in all its flavours,
with a dash of awareness 
and finished with a quiet
confidence lightly held,
such an exquisite being,
to taste her
is to taste the strength that 
holds everything together.
