point of departure

spin and spiral
engulfed in wonder
stirred into awakening
blood quickening through

the heart caught pounding
between yearning and fear–
earthsurge pulses
in a wild rhythmic dance

of elemental music–
sensory patterns that become
a voyage of inception
whirling itself alive

Sherry at earthweal asked us to Write a poem about Earth’s wild music. And Sarah’s W3 prompt was a poem of 12 lines or less that includes a contrast of images or ideas in response to her poem “Work in Progress.”

  1. This is wonderful. Earth’s most elemental music is wild and fierce. When I stand by a raging winter sea, in storm, I am in awe of her power.

  2. I’m happy for your art! It’s such a gift! I cannot tell if the paintings accompany the word and the world–or, maybe the words accompany the art’s magic to get to this:
    “voyage of inception
    whirling itself alive”
