Poem 130 – Boomerang & This Week’s Virtual Tour Events


This particular fear
is a boomerang

I’ve thrown her
with all my might

bid her good riddance
willed her to Mars

yet she persists
propulsions a return

so graceful & spectacularly
stunning I mistake

her for awe welcome her
in an embrace

when she settles
I feel her grip

& understand my fault
my power shrinks

This particular fear
is a boomerang

will she shape shift
into a kite?

is it up to me to
give her the opportunity

to change…& discover
the sky as freedom

in permanent leaving?
