NaPoWriMo #21: Heroes

The muse was a bit slow in visiting me today, but late in the afternoon inspiration struck. The prompt was heroes. This poem is about three special women, and others of their kind. I'm really tired, and I suspect it doesn't do them justice, but it's a start.

Heroic stuff. I really like the well images.

Yes - a fitting tribute. Grandmothers, pioneers or otherwise, should be recognized. Well done - I enjoyed your poem.

Bravery personified.

A great poem - and a great idea. I like the way the well came back into the poem. I might try that interesting subject myself ... probably once I am over this marathon!
