Tonight's Poet Corner: Sonnet Solstice #263

The Animator
by Belinda Roddie

The animator made a film about
sky pirates on a grand adventure to
find Pegasus, fight foes among the clouds,
and draw gold from the sun. Their ship was blue
to match the sky, the captain tall
and beautiful. She never wooed a man,
but instead, made the women swoon, and all
her crew were awed when she had sword in hand
and scaled the masts of their nemesis's great
and daunting destroyer of other fleets
that had once sailed the cosmos. And yet hate
could not survive the battle, and the meats
of victory went to the good guys. Yes,
this movie was the animator's best.
