Medusa, a Poem

Updated on March 15, 2016


Forgive Fair Ebona:

The voice of all womanhood,

For pawning in her healing plants,

for poisonous root and stem,

We choke on easy prey, do we?

Leave the measurements of life

to the Carpenter,

and all will heal itself.

      Easy prey often has hidden power to fight back. "The measurements of life to the Carpenter"....such a lovely line. Your gift of words forever makes me full and amazed.

      Your word genius makes me come back and read again and again, getting a new perspective each time. This one is the most mysterious and haunting yet.
