It’s the last chance,
for my last dance,
with words.

swings us around
inside outside
upside down
opening channels
where blood words flow
plucking our soul strings
pulling us low
down to the under of every day’s up
laughing and crying
displaying our trump
April’s wet bloomings
with dark hungry loomings
bring color and pain to the fore of our front.

  1. This has great rhythm, Brenda. Yes, we actually made it through this month in one piece 🙂 Thanks for your encouragement my friend. Looking forward to seeing you and everyone else at the whirl. Keep writing!



  2. YAY! Bravo! We did it! It seemed much longer than 30 days, didn’t it? Thank you for pulling me along the way with you. I needed the feedback and inspiration you provided. Your finale poem is a perfect ending to some great writing. I look forward to connecting with you again at The Whirl!


  3. Your twistings and turnings and cavortings this morning are delightful, Brenda! But no, it’s not really the last chance—you’ll have many more opportunities to dance! 🙂


  4. It has been an invigorating month

    Enjoyed writing alongside you, Brenda!
