Folktober Challenge, Day 20

Yesterday and today: Merril's historical musings

Inspired by 3.20 “The Blue Lady”

The Blue Lady

Perhaps this one is different—
in blue, the color of hope.

Perhaps she is distinct,
unlike the spectral women
of grey, white, and red—

the scorned and deceived
set on revenge, the victims
who incited lust.

Perhaps she’s only set apart
by youth, a maiden still—

perhaps she wanted more–
prejudged, condemned,

perhaps you see her,
perhaps you don’t—

she’s trapped between
what was and what might have been.

For Paul Brookes’ Folktober Challenge. You can see the images and view the other responses here.
