Set Me Spinning One More Time

~ after Robert Brewer

My world is a helicopter seed
spinning and caught
in a double twirl, a ribbonous
helixed curl
of my inherent imperfections.
I can but only
hope that the seed after next,
or the one after that perhaps,
takes hold and sets
anchor to my feet, but not quite yet
as my heart’s set
to spin a bit more.

  1. Oh, excellent. I wrote one combing the two also but it didn’t deserve the light of day.

  2. This is a wonderful piece. I read it three times in a row, and will go back for another. Well done!
