Poem: Spider web and dust




spider web and dust clings to the things
your fingers have abandoned
as tornado pulls through
your life and you watch
everything unfold; in one moment
you find a key to make meaning
do not be afraid of storms.

  7. Agreed...we should not be afraid of the storms (though not always easy not to), as they often 'blow' us in the direction of discovery or meaning!

  8. I enjoyed the powerful imagery as well as the positive note at the end. In fact may those 'storms' make us stronger in the end.

  13. The first few lines are so sad to read, Natasa, but towards the end one can still find some cheer & courage after the storm. Short & Crisp. Happy Easter to you & yours!

  14. The storms arrive just in time to make us strong enough to let go and to move forward. We're greeted by so many rewards when we do move forward. Beautiful writing, Natasa :)

  15. I love this. It felt like a loving slap. ( Is there such a thing?) I like the boldness of it, the stark reminder that we all have storms, that they will pass. I really enjoyed reading this.
