On the mantlepiece
a poet dozes
staff in hand,
a bull poised
ready to fight,
a white rose petal
on his head

This is my contribution to the challenge with @poemblaze – I challenged him to write a poem of free association and imagism. Mine  is more imagist – inspired by stuff on my mantlepiece.

  1. This is not only a mantlepiece…it’s a think piece. The white rose and the bull conjures up so many images and notions. Strength, beauty, courage, innocence…so much more. I really like it!
