I Am The Whirlwind - Poem by Romeo Della Valle

Outside,
The wind breathes through me
As though it was alive
And I was the element
Cutting through the edges
Of time and stillness
With the angles of my mind...

A hollow shell washed out
From the Sea
Onto the shore of life
With the echoes of forever
Swirling inside...

I am the whirlwind
Storming through eternity,
Impressing my passing journey
Into the Earth's tranquility...

    Great write Rome! I love the angles of my mind and echoes of forever lines brilliant! One little thing, formally, the last stanza I am a whirlwind should it perhaps be the whirlwind because the poem has a great specificity to I and using an indefinite article didn't quite seem to fit this unique beautifully destructive image

    All the best, man

    I am a whirlwind
    Storming through eternity,
    Impressing my passing journey
    Into the Earth's tranquility...
    this poem is itself a whirlwind storming through the eternity. with best regards

    Yes, this is the sound of the ocean/wind inside a shell: the sound of eternity. It is a haunting allusion you make that transports one to those turbulent places only to be nestled back in the safety of the earth mother. Well done Romeo. (Report) Reply
