One Single Impression: Myth

Host unlimited photos at slide.com for FREE!

What is myth
But Truth in her best clothes

Her jewels and eyes full of

Morning and moon

All at once

Stars dripping

From her fingers

Into your eyes

As she opens

Her arms wide

Pulls you close to her heart

Where her
Undecorated

Story lives.

Be embraced

Feel the beat of her heart.

    I love how you dressed Truth in moon and stars! Allegory and Myth are usually prettier than naked Truth! Stars dripping from her fingers is a lovely visual!

  10. I love the lines "but truth in her best clothes" and "where her undecorated story lives." They both capture the essence of myth.

    P.S. You look great in your new pic!

  12. It is the lure of hope and fantasy intertwined that pulls us in and allows our imaginations to soar to unbelievable heights. Your words are lovely as is the statue also.

  17. Wonderful photo and poem. I particularly like this section of the poem:

    "As she opens
    Her arms wide
    Pulls you close to her heart
    Where her
    Undecorated
    Story lives."

    What a fabulous image "undecorated story...."

  22. What a beautiful poem. I could come up with nothing this week. This is just a lovely poem. "Truth in her best clothes" is a gorgeous line (and true as well, I think).

  23. This is my poem--thanks for asking! The statue stands at Riverside Cemetery in Waterbury, Connecticut. There are many mythical figures there. All capture the essential beauty of the human spirit. I love the place.

  24. Wonderful poem, Sandy. I loved that her heart is "Where her / Undecorated / Story lives." No embellishment, the story itself being enough. Brilliant!

    Peace - D

    I like that line, Where her
    /Undecorated/Story lives.
    That's a lovely turn of phrase. :)

  32. Very nice! It reminds me a bit of other people's words on the Divine Feminine.
