Sunday’s ReVerse poem – 2 April 2023

Normally, I would use this space to comment on the lines gleaned from the last several weeks of writing…but I have chores to do, mouths to feed and several souls to keep. 

Suffice to say, I am determined to write as often as I am able. It is my peace in the storm. I need these words more than you know. And it is a bonus when they manage to fall into place and resemble a poem! So…that said, that’s all I have right now…back to care taking, taking care to dribble a few lines now and again, keeping my own questionable sanity in check!

Peace to you my friends. Be kind above all things. Oh, how this world needs kindness.

Sunday’s ReVerse poem - April 2, 2023

I have words, so many words
weary from these long, long nights
heaven enfolds me
winter’s end is near
it’s power they crave…and your soul
until all that’s left
to rouse us at dawn
on fire with fever
murmuring sweet poetry
I know…whatever…
I heard the sky is falling


A ReVerse poem (a practice I started many years ago) is a summary poem with a single line lifted from each entry of a collection of work over a particular timeframe and re-penned in chronological order as a new poem. Unlike a collaborative poem, the ReVerse features the words of one writer, providing a glimpse into their thoughts over time.
