Woman on the Wall-Poetry & the Visual Arts

👼📝 HELLO DARLINGS! TODAY WE’VE GOT A WONDERFUL SKETCH AND NICE WORDS. “A TEAR ESCAPES. GRAZES THE FEATHER. WHISPERS THE TRUTH SHE CARRIES’.

dark and deep

from a collage in soft pastels and pen by Quinn Clarice Mae DeRuiter

The Woman on the Wall

carries stories hidden behind her closed eyes.

Her vibrant red lips

sealed

shut,

a story speaks in a blue feather.

Its whisper touches her shuttered eye.

A tear escapes.  Grazes the feather. 

Whispers the truth she carries

dark and deep

but alive with hope.

Someday she will tumble

from the wall.

Her feather, safe in her black hair,

lies tucked under the bird nest bun

that perches on her head

hat like but trembling 

with new born birds.

Free, her stories birth as words.

The words & birds grow together

until the birds fly them both away.

The woman finds laughter.

Her eyes fly open.

They cannot stop staring.
