Michelangelo in Maine

Maine


Rocky Captivity

Maine Coast
Rough
Jagged
Giant boulders
Along the shore
Bastions against
Battering sea
Pounding winter
Storms
There in
A niche
Nestled into
Craggy rocks
Slaves of
Michelangelo
Sculptures for
Failed project
Tomb of
Pope Julius II
Neoplatonism
He found them
Liberated
Chiseled
Hidden in
Exquisite
Carara marble
Here returned
To  nature
Writhing forever
Eternal captivity
Buried by
Stone
