A Poem I’d Like to Share

This is something I wrote recently. I used to be a huge writer of poetry but they don’t rise up the way they used to. Maybe all that creativity funnels into my novels.

Anyway, when this one came along, I was surprised and delighted. I was thinking of adding it to my website, what do you think?


I will spin you a web of normal

A safe backdrop to your existence

I will give you the gift of consistency

A semblance of something simple

I will pretend away the darkness

A sacrifice to keep you safe

I will reset the axis of your life

A sacredness that will not be denied

I will rebalance everything

A seal upon my promise

I will spin you a web of normal.

    I like this, especially the way you begin and end the poem with the same line. What was your inspiration for the poem? Was it the picture, because the picture is stunning. It conjures all sorts of feelings: entanglements, strength, hesitation, going into the unknown…

    I like writing poetry, but the urge has to hit. I can’t sit down and write it.

    • Thanks Jenny. For some reason the poem just said this is how I open and close. You fill in the rest. 😉 It was about having to be strong for someone when they couldn’t be. I had a friend going through a rough time and I had to give them stability. The picture actually had nothing to do with the poem, but when I was posting the poem, I thought this picture fits the poem.

      I’m the same way. Poetry for me absolutely requires the muse. I cannot decided today I will write a poem. It just won’t work.

  2. Love it. I want to hear it in a song. 😉

    That is amazing! And it could make an intriguing introduction to a novel, too. The speaker would be one attention-grabbing main character.
