Bringing Shape to Our Whirlwinds


Bringing shape to our whirlwinds, our mass of words

tested in the fire, becoming refined, spinning in the furnace

until a work of art, freshly extracted

from a heart reborn, becoming

a poem or a weapon against fear

we are launched, beyond the rubble.

And then

we write it all down.

  1. love this photo; brilliant representation of a whirlwind; especially as these are one of the types of flowers which have expressive faces in their patterning 😀

    1. Thank you Connie for your wonderful comments! This has become one of my favorites that I’ve written. Peace to you and your family, and have a wonderful Sunday!
