Uncover Covered Secrets … And Dance!

Uncover covered secrets like opening closet doors

For no more is there fear in being near evermore

To truth unfurled like an unsullied flag of beauty

In now unhidden glory adorning your true nature

In nurture of gladness bringing peace to the soul

Filling the hole dug before by shameful hypocrisy

To now be free to be who and what you really are

And freely dance so freely in newly won freedom

Gained even in this world of shackles and chains

A Prison Tableau

Here in my prison

I await freedom

By which I’m driven

Back to my Eden

That I’ve been given

As promised beacon

 


Note: The Tableau is an invented stanzaic form that paints a single image in keeping with the name of the form, tableau meaning picture. Created by Emily Romano who suggests the word “tableau” be included in the title. The Tableau is:

  • stanzaic, written in any number of sixains.
  • isosyllabic, 5 syllable lines.
  • rhyme at the discretion of the poet.
  • written describing a single image.
  • written with a title that includes the word “tableau”.
