Art, Fairy Tale

Heart and Soul…

From an original painting, ‘Earth-walking’ by Sue Vincent.

***

The first key is bigger than me

and inside is a box

identical but smaller

in order to fit

with another key…

*

Key number two is as big as you

whose mote is my beam

now clearly seen as I click the lock

and find inside another box

identical but smaller…

*

Key number three but

what will we see as we flick the lock

and peer inside the box?

A heart

blood-red and still beating…

*

The ground starts to shake with footfalls

much bigger than me

and a large eye appears

at the church window.

*

‘Fee… Fie… Foh… Fum…’

says the Giant.
