Stone chicken - a Poetry Friday post

This month, my poetry sisters and I are doing ekphrastic poems again (poems based on a piece of art). Andi sent us a bunch of truly lovely photos she took at the Glencairn cloister, and we each picked an image to work with.

I've been doing lots of work on my picture biography of Adelaide Crapsey, who invented the cinquain, so I decided to write one about my favorite image - a column with a carving of a chicken at the top of it.

Here's my poem:

Noble
somehow, perhaps
because rendered in stone,
puff-chested, far-seeing
chicken.

And here are links to the works of my lovely poetry princesses:

Love that the chicken is noble "because rendered in stone". Cinquains are a fun form - I'll be interested in reading your upcoming picture book. =), Bridget
