The Poet and the Beauty Queen

Miss Universe Ghana 2011

Perfection sways before him
In focus a moment, blurry the next

Like a mirage mimicking an oasis
Before a dried, thirsty, loveless soul…

She’s not necessarily Happiness
Or Pleasure’s perfect image.

There’s a lot good skin can hide.
The pretty face is the devil’s best mask

Love is a soul thing not a look thing.
What’s it with Poets and lonesomeness?

@ Sabah, before I became a photographer, I considered poetry :)

Well you're doing a superb job at being both a photographer and a poet! Keep it up :)
