This weekend the challenge from Weekly Prompts is the word; Noteworthy. Please go and visit their fabulous site by clicking >> Here . The below poem is my response to the prompt.
I do not have to be famous to be noteworthy
Nor am I remarkably important
But within my fading soul I feel worldly
I do not have to be a President to be noteworthy
Nor am I significantly superior
But within my weary heart this story is newsworthy
I do not have to be a golden deity to be noteworthy
Nor am I the almighty creator
But within my lonely dreams I feel praiseworthy
I do not have to be anyone else but me
A earthy wordsmith, kind and trustworthy
Feature Image: The Centauress, by Rodin.
The Centauress is a provocative variation on the traditional equestrian monument. Instead of a hero mounted on a horse, the heroine and the horse have become one. Rodin combined two previous works in the design: The horse comes from an unrealized plan for a sculpture of a Chilean general. He adapted the woman from a male figure in The Gates from Hell.
Why create this amalgam? Rodin described a struggle between humanity’s “two natures. . . . An image of the soul whose ethereal impulses remain miserably imprisoned in the corporeal mire!”
