caws and effect

Linda tends dVerse Poets Pub today and invites us to write ekphrastic poetry inspired by the artwork of Jackie Hurlbert…


 

sassy young redhead named penelope
decides who in the world she wants to be

dark ravens perch upon each shoulder
speaking words that make girl feel bolder

independent defiance paints hot lips
her arms cross tight or hands on hips

fiery moods untamed, she doesn’t care
determination’s depths in eyes that stare

penelope’s ravens sing rebellious song
this teen believes ravens make her strong!

“Conspiring With Ravens”

for us and our posterity…

 

liberty in law

men died for independence

let’s govern ourselves

constitutional freedoms

preserved in the bill of rights
