Read Poem: Obsidian Locks, by Rea MacDuff

Obsidian locks, speckled with snow.

A ruffian’s beard, dark as a hidden alcove.

Candle-lit eyes, deep as star stricken nights.

A visage a beauty, an emporium of delights.

Glaciers jut out, slicing the wind;

Those cheekbones of yours, cutting diagonal above chin.

The icy claws of this wintry house,

Leave me needing your touch and wanting your mouth.

Your lithe, svelte body: an image of grace;

Angling the heavens, honouring your face.

Your arms are safe havens, never-ending and strong.

The embraces bestowed are more-some and warm.

Your hands can hold the entire universe,

And balance on your pinky, our own little earth.

You walk among Gods in your towering stance,

As you weave through life, gifting your charming dance.
