QUEEN OF THE FOREST

QUEEN OF THE FOREST

A Poem by Red Rose
"

That spark of curiosity..

"
Leaves rustling beneath my bare feet,
as my velvet blue cape trailed behind me.
The long-lived trees now turned golden, 
bowed before their queen.

The inhabitants of the sacred forest
 watched in quiet anticipation.
As the strong wind cleared the path,
bringing about the steps carved by nature.

Gracefully I stepped on the ancient stairs,
just like my ancestors did.
I looked up at the enchanting door.
Gently stroking the strong hardwood,

I placed my hands on the intricate carved handle.
Holding my breath I pushed it open to a bright light,
not hearing the echoing gasps of the spectators,
And entered the realm of everlasting magic..

I really enjoyed this, so thank you for entering.

Your depiction of the queen is so powerful, everything trails behind and all must answer to her. The use of imagery, enjambment and descriptions are very clear and well chosen.

I must admit I started reading through yours in the beginning and made the decision to stop and leave yours until last because I wanted to feel every word you had written and give yours (as well as all my other entrees) the chance to speak to me, and your work really did.

I quite liked it! I get the feeling that you are a 'natural poet', one born to write--which is rarer than one might think.

Wow.. Thank you..
I've always thought that I'm an average poet.
Vivid and powerful descriptives. The purple cape was a nice touch - so much better than the norm of white or black. I liked the way in which added in the animals in the forest. I had good clear visions of foxs,squirrels etc - all watching on.

I beleive that a follow up to this will be coming as it leaves us all dangling at the end as to who or what is behind the door. It would be great if you did one...if not then- wha an enchanting read this was.

Mark.
