Draw the Bath

Just here, and there,
Shade it ever so slightly
To show the smooth contour
Of porcelained sides
The slight motion
Of rose-scented water
The gentle beauty
Of her shoulder and neck

But here, and here,
Do not hide with graphite
The light on the bathtub
Glaring off of the side
As it dances in the water
And ignites her eyes

Your pencil can sing
But that light is a symphony.

Comments are always welcome, unless you are going to be mean, in which case you can go straight to hell.

Please leave at least some form of name so I don't get all paranoid and think you are a stalker or my mother.
