Anne Bonny's Mantlepiece - Portico Arts - Art Print by Elizabeth Legget

It is common knowledge that Anne Bonny was a notorious female pirate whose fate has yet to be confirmed.  Some say she was hanged and some say she escaped and moved on to live her life as a barkeep in Louisiana.  No one knows for certain.

Neil Gaiman and Blackberry did a calendar of tales project and the March tale was about Anne Bonny.  What if she had gone on to have a normal life of children and home? (I am not going to say more about it.  Read it if you wish! ~smiles~)

When I read it, I imagined her mantelpiece.  Trinkets and paintings sitting there reminding her of the past.  This piece I imagined as a stained glass.  The tabby has no respect, but we don't expect them to, do we?

"The autumn wind is a pirate.  Blustering in from sea with a rollicking song he sweeps along swaggering boisterously.  His face is weather beaten, he wears a hooded sash with a silver hat about his head.  The autumn wind is a raider, pillaging just for fun." 

- Steve Sabol
