She’ll Call Someday – Free Verse – December 8, 2015


A ragamuffin – an orphan Annie
[or could she be a Raggedy Ann]
her innocence lies in her smile
illusive and sombre as a child’s
yet her hair flares out and flies
[a witch’s mane in moonlit skies]
enchantress – she’ll call to you
you’ll reply that you always knew
there’d come a day when she’d call
[that would be the day of your fall]
but for now … she’s just a fantasy
tickling behind your fragile sanity.

  1. Wow! this is an amazing amazing free verse Georgia! I absolutely love it!

    Fascinating and descriptive, with just enough room for the mind to wander free … questioning sanity? – which is totally mind-blowing!

    her innocence lies in her smile
    illusive and sombre as a child’s
    yet her hair flares out and flies
    [a witch’s mane in moonlit skies]

    these lines …. not only incredibly poetic – but delicious in capturing the essence of a “wild child” smile and face ….

    Wow – I am totally amazed – and love it! Thanks for sharing such an evocative and inspired response to the photo prompt!

    Cheers ~ Pat

      • it’s my pleasure Georgia … I try to offer something personal – yet that has “bite” (not hard or hurtful, but umm…. “professional” if I may be so bold?!)

        oh … and by the way … if this means anything …. that damn link to a polldaddy thingy is showing up as part of your response again …. for whatever that is …


        • I really can’t say what it is … it pops up every once and awhile on the notifications page … and not for everyone. Go figure .. I’ve chosen to ignore that annoying thing as I don’t seem to be able to figure what the problem is..
          I like your policy .. hard to emulate though .. but much appreciated.

          • LOL …@ the odd link thing …. good attitude to adopt there … since it’s basically as far as I can tell … nothing more than a pain in the butt … and since it’s kind of odd … but seems harmless … then, why try and waste time with all the dynamics …. so annoyingly weird, perhaps? but I can live with it.

            Well … sometimes it’s just hard to find “teeth” to something … and honestly, sometimes it’s just not the “right place” to offer … and that’s okay too ….. we do as we can and feel right …. inner compass is the best guideline … and apologizes for the delay in responding …

          • Too right … no need to worry about what you can’t change … even if it is annoyingly weird … no problem for the delay … we all also have a life 😉 and I understand your point here, well taken.
