the jar is ajar

pandora and hope poem
photoart & poem – ©2017 Laura Granby

unkindest of karmas
a girl growing full of curiosity
hidden with the forbidden
just an apple or a sealed vessel
– if worlds tilt on such equations
what hope? yet peppered with the punitive
our speck of salvation
to reach again or uncork the jar
