Stone man!

for one stop poetry - Sunday picture prompt

 Oh this man in stone, so much I love,
a lot more than any other fleshly one;
he sure has countenance so mellifluous,
only his jacket might seem a little old in fashion.

He is a man of valor, so metallic and sturdy,
for years, a demeanor so steadfast and calm;
yes, his smile indeed is a little dead; but he allows
even the birds to peck on his patience without qualm.

His rock solid eyes may appear blank for a while;
he still may seem a bit cold, gritty and sterner,
but ask any woman, he is so much better, as,
on the contrary, he never argues or back answer!

Good one! ha! Very funny close. :P

There is much I like about this, first that you would love a man with a stone heart more than a fleshly one. Second that his smile indeed is a little dead, his eyes are blank and he may seem a bit cold, but mostly: "he allows even the birds to peck on his patience without qualm".

Well done Celest.

Delightful!! Oh to find a man with such patience and such silence but since he is made of stone we won't be able to mould him into the perfect specimen now will we...sigh:)
Great poem Celest.

You see beyond the stone and describe the man in pose. I love that. You look beyond the surface. I hope you have or will see the true love of your life when it appears. I really love this poem.

A man who doesn't answer back? But I bet he's no fun to cuddle with either.
