O.S.I: Descent

This week's O.S.I's theme is Descent. This word conjured up a daring adventure and inspired me to write this piece.

Long, winding
Calls curious hearts
Down the
Staircase winding
Shadows gliding
In hats and halos
Hearts writhing
In rib cages
As distant
Fearless souls
Brave the descent

"Hearts writhing

Some choice words..but dreams and braving the descent are in this mix as well. I like it. did notice my son on the horse at the bottom right? He went back to Illinois to visit his Grandma and an Aunt he never met personally. Anyway..the horse with Putin and him riding in the same direction were too classic and the perfect tease!

Write Girl - I don't remember a poem that you have ever written that I have not thought was beautiful. This one is powerful.
