Haiku: Immortalized as Lady Liberty…
Mine, cast in stone, struggles free
Want a piece of me?
Copper, Wrought Iron
Her old clothes… tossed casually
She wants to be free
On a painful pedestal
Dashed dreams… Hopes for peace
Why is it significant? She stands for the hope, fears and tears many immigrants live with in a new land. She is the epitome of the hopeful and the hopeless cocooned by a tough exterior that hides life’s disappointments and pain… There is opportunity in the distance. More below
Won’t go willingly
She trusts her wounds will recede
Life’s … a mystery
She is me, tired but free
Nursing … ancient dreams
Immortalized as the Statue of Liberty gives hope and freedom a chance of survival… Yes, I pray so. Happy Holidays to All! What Statue immortalized you in stone? Why was it significant?
