Over at Poetic Asides, Robert Lee Brewer wanted us to write a poem about a meeting someone: first time, routine or after along reunion. How about finding a new side to yourself for the first time?
The Many Faces of Man
By: Meena Rose
Whispers flutter on the breeze
Carrying messages in code,
Promising mysteries beyond.
Her siren call he cannot outrun;
She casts her hunting web;
Ensnared, trapped and branded.
A deep rumbling issues forth;
Rage of an Angel trapped within;
An explosion of Light disrupts
Glamor, lasting Truth revealed.
Pounding hooves and tossing mane,
She charges from the flank;
Nostrils flaring, chest heaving;
She will give it all for him,
Her charge, her burden, her champion.
