Susumu Yokota “Purple Rose Minuet”

a million miles away
from home
a sideways glance away
from shown
one brilliant skyline from amazed
reclined on handmade canapé
the china white
of geisha’s gaze
remains unchanging
and sparks a minuet
of spacious elevation

passion flowers breathe and sway
their fever all embracing
chasing dreamscapes seamed in lace
these ceaseless plains breathtaking
allocating breathing space
dilapidated beams replaced
no heat escapes
redeeming grace amazing

herein flames sincerely blaze
thus flesh once cleft is merely grazed
abreast of blessings clearly phrased
undressed then of severe delays
the china white
of geisha’s gaze
is idolized
revitalized of primal light
no finer sight to tidal height appraised

treasures pinned with care
within a mesh of jet black hair
the geisha’s lips stained ruby red
kiss sweet ellipsis
tease its thread
staccato drift
yet seamless tread
amidst a bed of lotus blossom
not a whispered opus thence forgotten

the china white
of ageless face
no mask to baseness masquerades
for gracious are the serenades
of pristine ladies gleaned
indeed the geisha’s native theme
is spacious elevation
a million miles away
from home
a sideways glance away
from shown
one brilliant skyline to relace
as nature’s plaything
