Knight Errant

Knight Errant

Sometimes it is all too easy to judge things as they seem to us at first.  We look at the girl in the picture and presume that the Knight has captured her.  Her face, turned away, does not give us the evidence that she is in distress, but we can see it through our own assumptions of what is happening.  But maybe the Knight is errant because he is setting her free and has rescued her. And so in poetry it is vital that we create words and verse that is open to interpretation if we really want to access different audiences.  The meaning is irrelevant, the picture is everything.
