My Rotation

The world moves

as it is

balanced on its own pole

and so it is

with each of us

an axis inside

so unique

I can not move

(I will not)

from your orientation

instead I stand

my own line

firmly drawn

right through my core

(after a lifetime

of moving

from other people’s centers

I had almost forgotten

my own

and what a day lived

really feels like

and what colors

are born

when I watch

the rising of

my own sun).

    Nice! This reminds me of of a snippet of a poem by Stanley Kunitz: I have walked through many lives, some of them my own, and I am not who I was, though some principle of being abides, from which I struggle not to stray. Lewis Chamness ph. 479 422-4777

    Every word has been used for maximum effect and its message really resonates with me. How I wish I could capture that moment of self realisation so and portray it so beautifully.

    Interesting. Your message(s) resonated with me instantly. I’ve written along the same strands.
