Pieces of Peace

Perhaps, might you bounce

Addressing the glass ball

Eyeing the opposite wall

She cracked a smile

Told he was trapped inside

If the orb were to break

His life would be at stake

Time to move on

  3. Annette, this double Abhanga is magical! I think you connected with the woman in the painting. Love the whimsical form and the rhyming. ❤

  4. I like the sense of mischief here, as if she might break that orb.
