PAWN

She jumping up and down in the rain, water dripping down her neck into the dark valley leading to a mysterious cave, clothes clinging to her making a sculpture more beautiful than a painter’s dancing paint — her lips softly parted, scrumptious and full mating with the falling rain ; her aura angelic her dance…

BOMBYX MORI

    ” Crawling, slithering, wriggling on the mulberry tree; Savouring the flavour, partaking in the feast ; Tasting these juicy, sumptuous leaves; Feasting on those fresh, young green addictions; Such was my life , Happy, innocent and young , without even a strife.   Until the day I start spinning silk, Preparing myself for…

BALLERINA
