Futile Fortune words by Terri Kay Emanuel
Banished from the Garden
a frightened, shivering unicorn
lost in the woods.
has been built to honour her memory; celestial centerfold gallery
restless, haunted king.
A beguiling labyrinth dream
entwined inside laden sleeping beauty;
a glimpse of hope
suddenly she's galloping freedom lies ahead
through the forest clearing a flash of light her face in the sky
God's reign of tears
her unfulfilled dream shattered
her lost poetry scattered
generations of exaltation
futile fortune's rapaciousness
to recapture her vibrant essence millions
behold vitrescent quiescent camelot procession red rose begging mercy
for her soul her country's eternal sorrow.
Her lover's final betrayal
desolate anguished angel
address book; night table
in her forsaken farewell.
