a little whoosh or swish

..

her heart speaks to the world
in syllables, small murmurs

of sound ground up with (rock)salt.
if she’s curled a whisper ’round

that shimmer-moon, it’s to poem
-bounce the world into a leaping

of hearts, a crunch of soul.
a way to be,
whole.

    Loving this one! The joy of poeming…
    “it’s to poem
    -bounce the world into a leaping

    of hearts, a crunch of soul.
    a way to be,
    whole.”

    The first 2 lines say it all- for me. The mouth speaks the thoughts of the heart….love this.

    You are so cool. This is just totally awesome. That rock salt for example. Such a fabulous detail. And then curling a whisper around the room — a crunch of soul. You really are amazing.

    She sounds like an artist or a musician. The world is drawn into her leaping of hearts and crunching of soul
