well there are times you really dont want to escape you know....smiles....and essence seeking can be a lot of fun...lol....
Lost on your knees in search of her essence - i wish i had written that!
Wonderful illustration that I assume you used as inspiration. Excellent take on stripes and how they can hide things and how the mystery can take us in!
Helen, that was a fascinating picture and fascinating poem accompanying it! I like 'twirling technicolor stripes.' I enjoyed your take on the prompt.
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!
Mesmerizing picture, and great poem, Helen... I especially like the ending.
Wow I rally love that photo and "Absence of straight linesbetween the swirling curves" are great words
Fabulous accompanying words capturing the essence of the picture. Sure does hold your interest!

"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. :)
