    ****Inspired by my lovely Angelicsage!



    A piece of un-chiseled marble...
    I sit,
    undefined and non-existent.
    Inspiration was scent from the mind of
    the divine.
    "Touch that marble, Pheidias and make it live."
    In a room full of the scent of Olympian oil and
    incense, a creation is birthed.
    Pheidias,
    the genius on whom,
    inspiration was a frequent guest;
    was the sculptor of the majestic
    statue of Zeus at Olympia.
    This creation attained such merit,
    making it stride through the mists of time
    only to emerge one of the 7 wonders of the Ancient world.....
    And on the cold twilight of October 13th
    Inspiration slid her cashmere-smooth body
    quickly and pleasantly into the inner recesses of this
    mortal vessel.
    He cringed with unrest as his mind filled with the
    sweet orgasmic explosions of images of a breathing sculpture....
    pure, un-touched marble the color of lightly smoked honey,
    his form modelesque, slim and regal.
    Water-pure obsidians would serve as his densely sexual eyes
    and ebony satin a dark halo of soft hair.
    He would be endowed with the ancient attraction of
    the classical world,
    words and thoughts; so full and potent like black sand,
    as well as a deep-seated inner man and a poetic hand.

    He would emerge The "Imperial Mystery" of Pheidias.

    The unspoken desires of God danced with the unspoken powers
    of creation through the chisel and hammer of a mortal vessel.
    With each fall of the chisel,
    God told a story....a story of creation in a
    heightened form.
    Definition and Solidity and Shape,
    He began to emerge.
    Like the dark whisperings of a river
    against a canyon walls;
    Slowly He began to emerge from the
    shapeless void he had lain dormant in
    for eons.
    The chisel struck until breath was
    breathed within.
    I awoke to a sky filled with infinite possibilities and
    I began kissing eternal impossibilities that were now realities.
    The project was carried out and soon finished.
    Here I stand, every inch a man.
    The sun beams down on my smoked honey complexion, and
    shadows dance across each definition and line of
    chiseled and unnatural perfection.
    The "Imperial Mystery," I am born.
    A living,
    breathing,
    and existing sculpture of honey colored marble
    that will be a walking display in this Earth's Museum
    from dusk till dawn.
    The "Imperial Mystery," is me....I am born.

    This was so painstakingly molded, you could almost feel the image being perfected. Flow on, poet, flow on.
