Magpie Tales Photo Prompt 86: Reading Eulogies

 Michael Sowa, from The Little King
Shared by Tess Kincaid



resurrection



as a man's home 
is his castle 
the naked light 
of his life 
is cloaked beneath
his robe 

blinding all as he 
stands upon the 
obituary of his 
bitter black 
chicory life.

  2. You pulled a lot from the painting and expressed it so succinctly. I particularly like the "bitter black chicory life."
