Shapeshifting Powers


come with me, my sweet

stalwart and steadfast I am

I intend no harm

come with me, my love

my guise from an evil spell

it’s freedom I seek

extend your soul, love

render your magical glow

our lives ours to keep

take my hand and join

my loved existence of yore

once upon a time

    Yes. A magic spell is the first thought that arises on seeing the picture.

      Researching the history of the image shed a different light on its intent for me. Most interesting challenge and I feel my response to the prompt would have taken a different direction if I hadn’t done the research. Thanks for the opportunity.

        You prompt me to do the research, which I haven’t done as yet 🙂

    I loved the intenseness of the poem Eugenia. The lover is so demanding, but intends no harm. I am working on blogging this theme for Reena’s challenge but going in a different direction.

    This works perfectly with the image, and serves as an excellent response to the challenge, so there is that… However, for me, as a stand alone, with your meaning left completely to my imagination, the poem is haunting and serene.

    Hey, you are a winner either way; but isn’t that just like you? 🙂

      Thank so much, Michael and I appreciate your observations. IMO, if my poem is in response to a prompt, I believe it should also be able to stand alone. Sometimes, I feel I get too caught up in the prompt.
