She braids her roots into the stars,
a triumph of chimneys at her crown.
She ponders petals and sparrows,
casts the moon, and pins it down.

Inspiring prompt from over at dVerse Poetics today, where Lil is hosting.
Such beauty in simplicity of words. Loved this post!
I agree,just wonderful
Triumph of chimneys!
Anyone who can pin down a moon rules!
A triumph her chimneys!

Nice De! A woman who knows what she is doing!
Oh my. Speechless. (and I must look for more from this artist) (K)
Yes! Follow the link! Gorgeous stuff!
The opening line was ingenious.
Nice last line about pinning down the moon.
casts the moon! Love that.
I like it when the title is part of the poem and that title is a humdinger! I love that her chimneys are triumphant and that she ‘casts the moon, and pins it down’.
Whimsy indeed! You pin the picture down perfectly, and so brave to be so brief.

A powerful creature, she is……love this.
Sweet that the title becomes the first in the poem. Your brevity is so lovely, I can see it on a plaque below the painting.
I so love the braiding of roots into stars… lovely
stars, De – you write from among the stars
oh i never expected to see that line, the chimneys do look like her crown, a most succinct portrait of this interesting lady.
