Fandango’s Friday Flashback: January 31

This post inspired by Fandango’s Friday Flashback – January 31

Wouldn’t you like to expose your newer readers to some of your earlier posts that they might never have seen? Or remind your long term followers of posts that they might not remember?..Why don’t you reach back into your own archives and highlight a post that you wrote on this very date in a previous year?


This post is from January 31, 2019 in response to V.J.’s Weekly Challenge.




This post inspired by V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #33: Upside-Down



upside down: in or into total
disorder or confusion


right side up…
in its place.
comforting clarity…

safety wrapped around
blind trust.
knowing what’s to come

until sucker punched…
lights dimming
without a map…

losing balance…

tumbling alone.
blank slate…
the new reality.

learning to focus
all over again.

  1. I love this poem…it has some similarity to my poem’s line about being jostled, knocked off peace-perch temporarily. The sucker punches are real, and not fun–the unpredictability factor shakes us to the core. But we are a resilient lot, aren’t we? Women of great strength.
