destined to be alone to face the grind

Image: Fighting her Own Battle (here)

the advancing waves rose rightly higher
menacingly secured in all of its strength
never the intention to challenge nature
but when it did come with bared fangs

ready to face the onslaught unarmed
seemingly against this lady defenceless
but with inner strength deftly enhanced
dragging a long red shawl in readiness

unsuspecting in earnest but a brave front
tracing a memory still fresh in her mind
robbed of his presence tragic in circumstance
destined to be alone to face the grind

  1. A lovely ekphrastic poem, Hank!💞

  2. The poem is perfect for the photo. Nicely done!

  3. She must be brave indeed. Beautiful writing Hank!

  4. Could have been written about me.......being alone to face the grind. Suprising what the sea can enfold.
    Lovely words Hank excellently written;


  5. Have to be brave to face it head on indeed

  6. Brave, or despondent--if we interpret that image literally!

  7. Hank, I predict she will loose the women's fight. She is ready to fight bulls, wild water in the rampage always winds, the winds are fanning her anger.

  8. I like how you evoke the power of the waves, hank, in the lines:
    'the advancing waves rose rightly higher
    menacingly secured in all of its strength'
    '...when it did come with bared fangs'.
