Six Little Red Caps: Epilogue

17 Aug

Young Grandmother

in the forest

ivy grows thick over an unmarked grave

where six red sisters sleep with eyes open

dirt in their mouths

feathers where their hearts once were

and the howl of a wolf in the night.

 

That’s it – that finishes up my series on Tale of Tales’ “The Path!”   Many people interpret the game endings as meaning that all six sisters died.  However, that’s not how I see it – I believe that each sister has to pass through a sort of trial in order to mature and pass on to the next stage of life.  What do you think?  Do Scarlet, Carmen, Ruby, Ginger, Rose, and Robin die or not at the end, and what do their ‘wolves’ signify?

Written with the permission of Auriea Harvey.  Other poems in the series include:
