A ‘Waltz Wave’
in moments of upset, I remind myself to reach up with my mind's hand for the bright halo ~ my better self; and breathe steadily as I stretch up to it
What do you see #179
For WDYS #179, Sadje offers us this computer-generated image by Axel Ruffini (Unsplash) of a multicolored metallic hand encircled by a golden ring as inspiration for us to write poems.
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!

To reach gently and softly but with deliberate purpose – very good, my friend. 😀

This is fantastic, David. I love this take on the prompt, and I need to try out a Waltz Wave poem myself (it’s such an elegant poetic form!!)
