Here’s a little piece for this weekend’s Trifecta challenge (always completed practically at the last minute, you know) to write a 33 word response to this picture “Another Head Hangs Lowly”  (credit to changó) :

[ another head hangs lowly ]

 

A mercurial witch.

Her words transfigure me

into shades of myself.

A rock.  Impassable.

A goddess, resplendent.

A soldier, downtrodden.

A beggar.       Repugnant.

Her baby-child to love

or to loathe at her whim.

  1. This is wonderfully original! I love the idea behind the “shades of myself” and it makes me stop and think about what that would be in terms of myself! I’m really impressed at how you used your 33 words! Excellent work!
