Best Poem of Sonya Florentino

# # A Sudden Turn (With Haiku Version - My Very First!)

A SUDDEN TURN (original version)

a fish darts forward

as water lilies re-arrange in the water

centered, in the moment


til it once again flits by

or a bird swoops down as suddenly

from the sky

A SUDDEN TURN (Haiku version)

a fish darts forward

water lilies re-arrange

space in the water


moment unbroken

til fish again flits by, or

bird swoops down from high

My Muse

My muse is not a lady
My muse is a man
My muse is a man who haunts me

My muse is not a woman
Whom I would understand
My muse is a man who torments me

My muse is not a she
For she would set me free
My muse is a man who's possessed me

My muse is not imaginary
My muse is a man
As real - as tortured as I am
