Gliding Veil

With gliding veil in dark wood
Unknown woman years stood
Beheld the way-strayed King,
Fuddled in his amorous ring.
Undressed her backward view
He saw and cloth tried to give.
To extend hand, to touch skin
Were his ideas her heart to win.
The glory and kingdom I shun,
In search of true queen do runn.
Noble thou look, on thee I dote,
He handed and lines did quote.
She fell and into pieces broke
Just as he touched as a crock.
In fright chest began to heave,
Come to senses - he withdrew.
The sedate King lost in thought;
Beauty, the volant veil brought?
Put life in an immovable queen,
Fostered feeling wind unseen?

A river frozen deep, a blanket of smooth ice.
Wide and forever in all directions.

I skate.

Wind whispering through the strands of my hair,
a sweet conversation.

Gliding,

I draw with the blades of my skates,
My skirt is flattered by the wind, how flirtatious.

Flying,

My feet begin to confuse the ice for air and start to float.

Free.

I feel the warmth of ice.

intangible beauty filters in the
presence of wisps of air.

Like a ghost it is abstracted from
its former form.

Pearly elegance descends to the
place where all rests static.

the scrapping of rubber shoes
on the pavement alarm me
frantically gliding as if
in search of something

the halls are suddenly
narrower than yesterday
and all the other days before

this always happens
whenever i am rushing
and i am always rushing
so i wonder why i'm always
surprised to find myself this distraught
when its color isn't pretty on me
just making everyday happenings like  being late for class dramatic
