Labyrinth of Stripes


with permission:  chakradance 



between the swirling curves
her face morphs into a
technicolor labyrinth 
leaving you mystified ~ lost
on your knees in search of
her essence ~ her center 
her vortex sucking you down
no chance for escape

  5. I was thinking the same as brian! haha! Actually, my eyes kept darting back and forth between her eyes and the swirl right next to her eye ... you've captured the movement and our being drawn into it beautifully!

  15. "dangerous curves ahead" ha ha. Wow, beautiful image. My daughter just did a face painting, African Goddess, and I 'm thinking of using it for a prompt at the Garden of Toads. We will see... This poem ... all woman are a bit mystifying - but even more so with makeup, I'm sure. :)
