My love affair with Geishas runs deep. I found an old book of poems today. Here’s one from way back..I was about 19 when I scribbled this in my book.
A Geisha to me is a woman, of silent beauty & grace:: Her pain & hardships are as concealed as the butter skin under her painted face:: Wearing the richest of kimono, without a penny to her new given name:: Holding her head of wisdom high, but inside she burns with shame:: She could play the strings of a shamisen, if a gentleman were to ask:: She could play the strings of your heart, yet there is a fee for her task:: A Geisha dances like a butterfly, as she acts on the great stage, she’ll mesmerize you over a cup of tea, never revealing her age:: Her precious virginity can be purchased at a very steep price:: Her body is only nourished with vegetables & rice:: She was just an innocent child when she was sold by her own flesh:: She was trained to be a Geisha, forever existing to repay a lifelong debt:: 🦋
