dVerse Poetics - Judith Clay (but too late to link up) "Balloons Optional"

"You can fly, Mary" by Judith Clay
Balloons Optional

words
define,

wings release,

so her truth
will forever soar skyward, heavenward -

creating poetry while dancing doves and angels smile.

by Margaret Bednar, August 27, 2013

This is for dVerse Poetics - Judith Clay  (but I'm too late to link up) a whimsical artist in which I just had to try to write a whimsical poem.  I chose a newly introduced poetic form - the Fibonacci (introduced HERE by Imaginary Garden with Real Toads).

This specific print is HERE and is inspired by a 12-year old girl, Mary, who was diagnosed with bone cancer in 2012.  I truly hope she's doing well, enjoying life, but many don't make it.  Children in the hospital so often give a precious gift to so many who visit them, with their sweet souls, hope, and their will to live!

This is lovely Margaret. Your poem really complements the painting, done from such tender inspiration.

I enjoyed this.
Poetry - the words that give us freedom to fly- nicely done, light and whimsical and picture perfect.

That painting is lovely. I went to read about the Fibonacci – it is intriguing. Alas it pairs poetry with math….. but you have used it well in your poem- bravo!
