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

Surrender

Cut me loose
From these ropes
I'm not running anymore

Pull me out
Of this hole
I'm not hiding anymore

Ask me to
Bare it all
Deepest reaches of my soul

Take me now
Set me free
I am armed and ready

[Hata Bildir]
