IGWRT's Sunday Mini-Challenge "Soaring"

doll by Junsung Lee
Soaring

Trail blazing 
a mid-night sky, 
I gallop 
upon the Milky Way,
bow low 
only to Sagittarius.
spiral over 
ink black rifts,
gaze upon 
Cassiopeia's beauty,
soar the star fields, 
wild and free.

This is for Imaginary Garden with Real Toad's Sunday-Mini Challenge "dolls".  I am hosting this week's Sunday Mini Challenge.  The dolls are truly awesome and made by very talented high school visual art students.  Each doll was originally portrayed in a sketch by the artist.

We were on a similar wavelength with this one, Margaret. This was my favorite of the dolls.

I'll sit on my roof tonight.

Hannah said...

Yes, I love where you took your vision of this art!!! Such a great piece, Margaret!

Helen said...

LOVE the poem and the addition of her original sketch is perfect.

The first thought that sprang to mind as I looked at this doll ... the "Goatherd" song in Sound Of Music!!! Remember how they all danced around as Julie Andrews and the kids pulled their strings?

What talent these girls have and you have captured her doll in words fantastically. Love how you have it soaring through the stars...the old saying so true "the sky is the limit."

Margaret said...

Thank you everyone! Walking this exhibition in person was FUN. The textures, the craftsmanship were so fun to see up close. Trying to match the students to their doll was fun too. :)

I'm totally impressed by what these students are doing, Margaret!

Your description of the doll as a star horse works very well - there is something other-worldly about it.
