She walked in Palaces of old
And shone much brighter than the gold
Her feathers soft, with silky glow
Imbued with magic, dreams to know…
A sacred prize and wars were fought
And Princes died as her they sought….
O’er layers of time her legend fades
And she drifts softly with the shades…..

    Gorgeous work my friend – and you write poetry too ☺ x

  • Ummmm…not really! One up from a limerick, but it somehow seems better to write verse with an image like this rather than words!

    Polly, this is another masterpiece. I’m amazed at how you build layer up layer, transforming a photograph into a fine canvas!

  • I wanted something slightly misty, slightly ethereal…I am really glad you like it Bonnie!! Takes me ages! ( But I love it…I do it really slowly, with lots of cups of tea and much muttering!! )

    Lovely old gal there, Miss Polly! Beautifully presented…as she clearly ought to be! I love the regal expression on her face…and can just picture her submissive subjects bowing to her Majesty as she passes by…another Polly Wonder…

  • A Hint of a Tint of Magic follows in her wake…..
    I am loving this freedom to start telling a story now, and the encouragement to carry on is HUGE!!
    Never experienced this kind of support before for something I want to do for myself…not work, or family , but ME!!
    Makes me a bit emotional sometimes…..

    Gorgeous image Polly, once again. Cream Peacock, as from a dream. The verse is a great fit also.

  • I wasn’t sure about the verse..I am an old fashioned rhyming girl …but verse seemed more appropriate than just a written story…
    Hugs,
