Within the pelting rain curtain
a giant face stares at me
demanding that I turn three times
gradually my arms outstretch
like a helicopter whirling away I spin
one, two, three
sharp raindrops ricochet
as black gloves transform to wings
I turn to my blackbird lover
and we fly into the night like planes.

this piece truly resounds with a poetic depth. Amazing imagery created beyond the image itself, moving it like a masterful painting.
Like a helicopter...yes...

I love this and can picture this...bird and woman flying off into the clouds! Ingenious!
She achieves a new dimension with this one -- nice!

Laurie, how lovely! I can see her spinning. Flying.
This is a wonderful piece of magical realism. I really enjoyed the imaginative scene.
I can see the giant face too! Well spotted! LOL
Standing in the rain (or under the shower, for me) makes one want to do that, doesn't it - to turn and turn, as if by doing so one really could fly.
A lovely, engaging write on the image - clear to see your imagination (if nothing else) took flight. :)
I LOVE this, especially the last two lines. Wow!
Very nice transformation, Laurie.
Wings, and a blackbird lover...perfect!
