Todays poem was inspired by a beautiful skyscraper photo taken of the Twisted Torso in Malmo, Sweeden

twisiting torso

White innocence

Against a deep blue sky

Brightness shinning 

Against the lush green trees

Slowly rising

From foundations deep

You turn with strength

Clockwise, each segment

Spirals relative to the next

Each pentagonal floor

Rotates around its vertical core

Your heart pulsates

Increasing, expanding,

Escaping, breaking free

Earth holds you bound

Yet reaching into the sky

Air flows freely

Peace all around

Your torso twists

Like a human being

Contorting, growing

Beauty in your structure


You pull with all your might

I watch as you strain

your little body so intense

you are determined

you heave, you tug

you jerk, you stretch

stubbornly it sticks.

You release slightly

then twist as you heave.

It relaxes

you stumble backwards.

it’s free, ¬†you want to celebrate

you run around the mole hill

others chasing for a share

you stop, stare at them

one swift gulp

it’s gone

now sparrow you are full

of worm.
