Poem #14 – Woman with a Unicorn


Start your day with a bit of a mystery and art. Following the example of one my fellow April 30/30 Tupelo Press poets, I’ve decided to write a poem inspired by a famous work of art. My choice, “Young Woman with a Unicorn” by Raphael, has an interesting and mysterious history.

Intrigued? If so, scroll down the list for Day #14 to read “Under a Layer of Paint.”

If you love poetry, I hope you’ll consider supporting a poet this month. Scroll  down read my work (and those of the other poets) if you can, and consider supporting me with a small donation. Supportive comments on this blog are also very welcome because they inspire me to keep going!

Many, many thanks to all of you have contributed to the cause so far — either through a monetary donation or moral support, which are equally valuable.

Please know that your contributions are going to a great cause. Tupelo Press is a prestigious non-profit press, and for 17 years their mission has been to publish new voices. They are giving my work some exposure, and bringing me into a community of over 350 alumni helping each other publish our work.
