Fallen L – Poem by Diane Webster

Poetry by Diane Webster

The old woman resembles a fallen L
as her torso parallels the sidewalk.
As she stops to talk, a robotic pulley
system creaks silently in motion
hoisting her upright like a ship’s sail
except only a trial run at anchor.

After the conversation, she leans
into her L — a lovely old lady
laughing and delicate
as milkweed silk.


About the Poet

Diane Webster enjoys the challenge of picturing images into words to fit her poems.  If she can envision her poem, she can write what she sees and her readers can visualize her ideas.  Her work has appeared in “Better Than Starbucks,” “Eunoia Review,” “Philadelphia Poets,” and other literary magazines.
