Adoration

Laurel leaves grace thy handsome brow
Where the light of strength, wisdom and kindness
shines past centuries
to equal Solomon, Socrates and da Vinci
as timeless contemporaries.
Libra's balance sustains
and tempers
passion, power, and creative obsession
as an admirable directional force.

Thy fair countenance,
made fairer by
thy genuine heart,
draws me to thee
in love's mystical nature.

A sonnet's complication
would tribute thee,
but these simple phrases
are wrought with love and
adoration.

For Gino from Marsha
