Step Softly

Step softly
on angled illuminations
and stone
worn gently
by the tread of phantoms
in erotic lace
and exotic silks.

Slide fingers
along the sensuous
lines of marble
a contradiction of curves
cooled by shadow
and blue veins
warmed by the sun.

Listen silently
to the zephyrs
of ageless air
observe
the dust motes
of centuries
pirouette 
before your eyes.

Step softly
into the past.
