Turning Mortal

(Poem by Wendy Howe )

A man believes
if Venus de Milo had arms
and was brought to life
by the temple gods,

she would be
his slender bride.

Wrapped in a white towel,
Galina stands
piling asparagus
into a pewter bowl.

Red sunlight
flowers against her hair
and he knows such beauty
can last only minutes -- seeds

dispersed by time,
taken from the awareness
of evening
and a sculptor's eye.
