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.

upside down: in or into total
disorder or confusion

 

right side up…
everything
in its place.
comforting clarity…

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

until sucker punched…
tilting.
lights dimming
without a map…

spinning…
belonging
nowhere.
losing balance…

tumbling alone.
crashing
into
a
blank slate…
the new reality.

upside-down
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.
