Alone with Marigold – Kyrielle Sonnet – March 11, 2016


Reflected in the wilderness
Hunger, thirst and then deep darkness
She walked alone with Marigold
Along her path both fine and bold.

To take give counsel she went north –
To her enemy she went forth –
Unto the city as foretold
Along her path both fine and bold.

She never fainted nor gave praise
But freedom’s banner she did raise
Her name was never known I’m told
Along her path both fine and bold.

Reflected in the wilderness
Along her path both fine and bold.

From Sunday Whirligig 49, The week’s words came from Psalm 107:1-13: wilderness, hungry, thirsty, works, darkness, counsel, thanks, enemy, north, city, fainted, praise

Mindlovesmisery’s Menagerie’s Photo Challenge and B&P’s Shadorma and Beyond – Kyrielle Sonnet

My Kyrielle Sonnet isn’t based upon anyone from the “real” world.  I just imagined how the once tiny girl in the photograph, from her childhood adventures with her cat might have grown into a bold decisive woman.

  1. Amazing combination of prompts Georgia – what an imaginative and bold tale you’ve created – so filled with light and possibilities …. and in a form that really suits all of it so well! 🙂



    • Hello Pat! So happy to see you, I was so wondering how to find you now you’ve drifted off from MLMM! Thanks, you’re always a font of encouragement – it was fun to write to that lovely photo … and the poem just came out of the air and so was a gift of the muse.

      • I’m not going to missing from MLMM for too long …. besides, it’s such a wonderful place with all kinds of inspirations 🙂

        You did a really amazing job of things with the prompts Georgia – absolutely wonderful to read and savor!


    • Thanks .. the photo isn’t mine of course and I do agree with you that it is splendid! The Kyrielle was a gift from my Muse and I’m so happy you enjoyed it, especially that line, how often do women forget to raise that banner for themselves …


    • Interesting … many have been the women in our past who could have felt the description I think of those line. The unsung heroines of history .. one of which Joan definitely belongs to.
