Shi Sai Sunday’s Week in ReVerse – 7 August 2016


Happy Sunday! It has been a most eventful week. We welcomed my beautiful granddaughter Bexley into the world. Honestly, my cup runneth over!

I managed to get caught up on most of my favorite writing challenges. Even on a very limited amount of sleep. But it is all worth it of course. Bexley is perfect!

Today’s Shi Sai speaks for itself. It’s slightly odd, but in a weird way it makes sense…sort of. Maybe I need more sleep! But first I have baby duty. I am blessed to have the next week to get lots of baby time while I help my daughter.

Shi Sai Sunday’s Week in ReVerse – 7 August 2016

I wish you had called before coming
retracing his steps would be key
like a thousand diamonds
I will be a bit scarce this week.
an angel sent from heaven in disguise
midst dawn’s flushed…hush
a trio of fury
deeply rooted in love
likeness mirroring likeness
my head just exploded!
a thank you is commonly uttered by the receiving party at this point
the fearful build walls


The Shi Sai, (formerly known as a ReVerse) is a form created by Kat Myrman in April 2016. It is a poem created by taking one line of verse from several poems of an author’s own collection. The shi sai is done as a review of a series or collection of poems and therefore, each line should flow in chronological order of the dates the poems were written (from oldest to new). The lines chosen should be the author’s favorite from each poem. This form works best if the author resists the temptation to read the full new poem before all the verses have been added. (It helps one to resist the impulse to change a line to make it “fit”.
