A lonely girl with man’s best friend

Poised in the stillness of time.

Watching the outside world

Passing – with curiosity and awe.

Trapped inside wondering if

Ever the ties will drop.

Freedom with no restraint,

Life to anticipate.

  1. Dear Mary,
    I thought the image went along perfectly with the poem. The tone of the poem has both a sad feeling, because the girl is trapped inside, but also a hopeful feeling, because the girl knows what is waiting on the other side. The blurred black and white really captured that well.
