A COMMON UNTOLD STORY

(from google images)

LITTLE WOMEN

Clad in veiled burden of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE

Trudging, WHERE EAGLES DARE

Brew their CHICKEN’S SOUP FOR THE SOUL

Creating their idyllic existence in THE DARK ROOM  

Scripting their EXPERIMENTS WITH TRUTH

The first names that came to my head:
LITTLE WOMEN - Loiusa May Alcott
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE -  Jane Austen
WHERE EAGLES DARE - Alistair Maclean
THE DARK ROOM - R.K.Narayan
MY EXPERIMENTS WITH TRUTH - Mahatma Gandhi 

Form for All: The Hidden Poetry in Books where Samuel Peralta wants us to be inspired by books and titles!

  2. It all came together and formed a genuine allegorical poem.
    Allegorical isn't the right word, but my tongue won't utter what my mind dictates at the moment :-)

  14. What an ominous undertone you have here, with its overt innocence. That's exactly the feeling you get from the veiled sculpture, so the poem works at double purposes as both a spine poem and an ekphrastic work. Well done.
