...once a week poetry treat for the young and the young at heart...
That 'armed' holds more than one meaning, I think. There is a new pic book about tattoos, about time, isn't it? Have a good weekend, Bridget!
Is he speaking his piece with his peace? Clever, Bridget, and fun to read it various ways.
Thanks, Linda! Yes, if only more people were "armed" with JUST words. I saw that PB - Tell Me a Tattoo Story by Alison McGhee - so glad it exists for so many families. Happy weekend to you, too! =)
Yay, Tabatha, you got my double meaning, too! Poetry Friday folk are so astute...and kind. Thank you! =)
I got it too--nice combo of words and photo. But why IS there always a dagger through the heart of love?
After reading the poem, I scrolled back up and saw your clever title!
Lots of cleverness here, Bridget! Nicely done.
Oooh. I love the play on words. Both tattoo and poem say so much.
Yay Heidi! Great question, what is it with the dagger - piercing love?
Thanks, Laura! I think a lot of thought must go into tattoos - well, I hope so since they are permanent. =)
Thanks, Violet! I appreciate your kinds words. =)
Thank you, Sally! Amazing how words on a bulging bicep can communicate a range of emotions. =)
I'm going to imagine he loves someone whose name begins with U. Like Uma. Or Unita. Or Urissa.
Clever, clever, Bridget - and I love the title, too. U are the best.
I think you are right, Brenda! Why else would he only use U? Love the name Unita! =)
Right back at U, Robyn! =)
Your poem can be read several different ways with different emphases. Very clever, very well done. Great message.
Thank you, Mary Lee! I appreciate your kind words. =)
