Persephone Hollywood

by Anna Lovering
(Lubbock, TX)

Rain filled a well
whilst crocuses in
fields whorled and twirled

With highlights casting
Shadows of ravens
In flight to land and

Create their mark as a
Brush stamped our earth and
Time honored her maidens

which danced atop spoon
Capped mushrooms
where sheer

Crimson poppies
folded as umbrellas to hoist
her along.

River beds forked out
of ashen grey silt
Where a Raven's stomping

ground took
Persephone down
who dusted cobwebs and

scattered seeds.
Nine, 'dear darling';
she shant stray.

Lucky to betwixt
a character so wild
within a heart, that

would not deceive.
That's why I chose her.
not through shame or

Impurity. Her mark graceful
and curious. Heart,alongside
hard work as Laborious.
