Zsa-Zsa’s Eyes

 

Paws resting on my shoulders,

I am locked in a loving

canine embrace.

Warm fur, sweet breath envelop me.....

Her eyes lock onto mine-

and for a moment,

I am

                                f

                                                   a

                                     l

                                       l

                                         i

                                           n

                                             g

under the spell

of Zsa-Zsa’s eyes.

 

What ancient memories and instincts

lie behind her noble gaze?

What is this language without words

that captivates the heart?

I only know that

I am

                                 f

                                   a

                                      l

                                        l

                                          i

                                            n

                                               g

under the spell         

of Zsa-Zsa’s eyes.

 

Like translucent stones of amber

entombing relics of the past,

ancestral secrets are reflected

In her golden eyes.

I am mesmerized, and

I am

                                 f

                                   a

                                      l

                                        l

                                          i

                                            n

                                               g

under the spell

of Zsa Zsa’s eyes.

 

Her bright and shining eyes

bore intently into mine.

Gleaming discs of gold

beckon me to run with her.

I surrender to the magic as

I am

                                 f

                                   a

                                      l

                                        l

                                          i

                                            n

                                               g

so joyfully falling

under the spell

of Zsa-Zsa’s eyes.
