“Seduction of Nature”

“Nature was the celestial nymph of the Infinite come to seduce me. Like the seaborne semi-silk-draped enchantress in Cot’s The Storm, she floated enticingly close, near enough for me to feel her body warmth and smell the inner-earth scents of her form but too far away to capture her as my own. I could feel the minute horripilations of her skin and hear the faint pantings of her breath, but she remained always just beyond my reach.  Nature paraded herself brazenly before my lusty eyes, hiding nothing, begging me to seize her, own her, master her, transform her into something that all humankind could worship. But, until now, there had always been a glass plate separating her from me. I could hear the notes but had not the voice, could see the colors but had not the hand. But now, something told me, maybe yes, maybe I would accept her challenge and take up her dare, pick up the silken gauntlet and seize her in the arms of my very soul and spin her round and dance, singing loud the music, stroking rich the colors in pigments fine and flowing.  Maybe now, now I was alive enough and wise enough in soul to meet her and make her mine.”
