Princess Revelation

(It hit her like a Tanka.)


She expected him
to be her knight in armor,
sweep her off her feet.
But in time she found the ground
held a strong sword of her own.

    From dependent to independent. Love it!

  22. I think I read it more accurately this time … the “her” is the ground … I read it as if the ground is holding the sword, the guy knocks the princess off her feet, and she falls on the sword. I read it as if he destroys her, metaphorically speaking.
