All seven of us based our poems on the same image, which is below, and was found by Tanita Davis. To me, this sculpture seemed a goddess, as you can see. I wish I had the proper photographic credit to let you know whose image this is, but I do not.
by Kelly Ramsdell Fineman
She is gathering
in the garden,
in her cage,
as seconds pass.

She silently thrives
on her belief
in her own power.
not her home,
this shell not
She will not
When she wills,
she will walk
free, glass ceiling
