A Duet of Olive and Cypress Tones

Emerging,

Unfolding under the early morning mist,

Under the canopy, Eyes of jade awaken,

Wood and musk,

Dance across her nose,

A duet of olive and cypress tones,

Flowers and feathers,

Fetch, through hair of raven night,

Ripened,

Sunlight sneaks, through darkened leaves,

Shadows cast,

Holding the light above her eyes,

Painted moss,

streams of yellow and blue,

Silken silver hues,

Branches droop,

Ancient groves,

Vines tiptoe,

Slip over her toes,

Wrap and bind,

Engulf,

Rooted,

Under the olive tree,

Of Greek mythology,

She a distant memory,

Lost on the tides of time.
