I am stubborn...

...that's why I'm still searching for a perfect photo that won't destroy my frickin' computer...

But, I wrote a poem today... Yay!

I humbly present my crappy style of poetry with:

"A Wanton Ode to an Asian Beauty":

Being too distant for me to offer a pass
and with your faraway face as long-frozen as glass
and with your twilight visage under a rising sun
you're the beauty that I want to have already won.
I want to touch you and to love you and know
such a bone-chilling heart-warming falling of snow.

So much like the cherry blossoms scattered on your floor,
that came from beyond the mere rice paper door,
you're so meekly framed while you're hiding behind
the sartorial grace of a Warrior's bride
as your midnightly locks drape you softly and low
surrendering as gently as the falling of snow.

There's a whole nether world that lives in your eyes -
- two prisms splitting darkness away from the lies.
I could wonder if I'll ever discover, in time,
how your lips might feel if they'd ever meet mine.
But, alas, I might as well let my heart down and go
and start listening for the sound of the falling of snow.

Bah. Still looking for a photo...

Shouldn't that be "A WONTON Ode..."?

Nope. Just check my trusty American Heritage Dictionary and w-A-n-t-o-n is correct. ;)

Yep, my brain definately went to go look at the gun magazines once the body wondered into the poetry section.

Look up "wonton" and I think you'll get LeeAnn's comment. ;-)

D'OH!!! I just got it. Thanks, Jen! And I was actually thinking of ending the poem with something like:
I open my mouth to ask for your hand
but only say "I'll have the moo goo gai pan"

How sweet. I think I may have just the picture to complement your poem. I'll send it to you shortly.
