Poetry exercise

  On a National Creative forum run by the Open University, the tutor running the forum asked us to write a poem based on this picture. Below is my attempt.

Alone she stares, silent in reverie
The sky as clear as she aspires to be.
So still, afraid to break the spell
And take the road she knows will lead to hell.
She stares, remembering times now flown
Success the goal that left her all alone.
So still, so scared of this reality
Alone she sits in silent reverie.
