She was set
battle never easy
dungeon & hard space
light and joy completed

This one is just fantastic. A portrait of Joan in such a few words. Just great.
Thank you so much, Claudia!
the last two lines a brilliant expression of the nature of her demise…the first line: it was something she had prepared for, accepted even?
Thank you, Doug.
Yes, I think she was prepared for and accepted her role, and perhaps her fate, as well.
This poem does well in depicting Joan of Arc, Merril. Too bad her light and fire ended her life!
Hmm, I misspoke, Merril. So sorry, I did not start with current post and make my way backwards.
Please feel free to go backwards or forwards or work from the middle. (It’s possible I’ve done that, too.) 🙂
Love this! Especially the line “light and joy completed.”
Thank you, Jennifer. Sometimes one gets lucky with the oracle’s word selection. 🙂
