I would like to nominate Snow's poem, Stone Lady (click on title to go to thread). It's a very unique subject to write about and I adore the structure, soft rhythms and imagery within.

Stone Lady by Eira Needham

Moon spills into his studio,
replete with scattered chisels
and unhewn rock.

His murmurs blend with magnolia
rustling in summer's breath.

Will he sculpt your tousled waves,
caress cool lips into a smile,
drape the curve of your breasts?

Elegantly fashioned, you pose
where bumbles and admirals
flit beneath the willow arch
entwined with honeysuckle scent.

Are you yesterday's love
ablaze like floribunda beds,
dampened with autumn's
melancholic tears?

Or perhaps a midnight phantom
lured into Morpheus's realm --
your vision cleaved into porphyry.
