Penning Her Freedom

by HOLLY ARMER   Apr 14, 2012

Sun light radiates
the blonde fields
that lavish the lands

Trees heavy with
apples in reds and green
painting the meadows canvas

You'll find her
with notebook in hand
as the stars blossom

Wielding her pen
like a handcrafted wand
conjuring words of poetic grace

Simplistic wonder
takes you swiftly into
the arms of prose

Dancing with stanzas
soft, melodic tempo
beneath the pallid moon

Weaving a spell of enchantment

As Rapunzel pens
her freedom from
atop this prison tower

    What I loved most about this poem was the title! So creative! I loved how you drew the scene right from the beginning so the reader doesn't have to wait too long to figure out the setting. I like to become one with the poem therefore setting the scene in the beginning, as a writer, is ideal. I loved how you described the stars as blossoming. That was so unique and fit so perfectly with your poem. You could have easily said twinkled but I am so glad you didn't! I love how the title was worked into your poem towards the end because it just tied everything in together nicely. Sometimes poetry is the only way we truly do feel free because we are tied down by so many constraints in our lives. Nicely written here!
