She stands – quadrille for dVerse

sometimes she stands
and lets herself
be an emptiness
where there is
no rain. Sometimes
she is the space
between sunbeams,
the stillness
within the wind.
Sometimes she is
a silence.
Sometimes she is
the pause before
movement, music,
laughter. Sometimes
she is
enough.

Quadrille for dVerse

  1. Stunning quadrille, Sarah. The beginning was so alluring and further building to the powerful message. Makes me think of suicide prevention. The perspective is refreshing that we do not always have to be something…sometimes it’s enough to just “be”.

  2. This spoke to me. I want to give these lines back to you,
    “sometimes she stands
    and lets herself
    be an emptiness
    where there is
    no rain.”
    What an opening!
    I enjoyed your poem all the way to the end.
