Two complementary ‘Waltz Wave’ poems
my first love
me feel safe
ready to face
horns and leap
my great joy
are your own
What Do You See? #186
These two ‘Waltz Wave’ poems were written in response to Sadje’s WDYS poetry prompt. She provided us with the above photograph, taken by Alisa Dyson (Pixabay), of a young boy holding the face of a woman in his small hands and smiling affectionately at her.
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!

Simply starstudded musing, reflection and narration
Love the “waltz” with his mother
And her posture to embrace him
Wishing him a wonderful and blessed day.
