A ‘Waltz wave’ poem
your tiny head against my shoulder; your heart- beat against my breast; your body swaddled securely to keep you safe and warm; ever wrapped in my mama- love
‘What do you see’ Prompt #152
For Sadje’s weekly #WDYS prompt, she offered the photo below as inspiration for writers to produce art.
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

I remember feeling something like that. So powerful that in one of my unpublished stories the call of his toddler’s love pulls the protagonist back from the edge of a haunting river death temptation.
