inside a circle of quiet
i wait out the storm, gathering
discipline, devotion, determination
enough, i hope, to unravel the
heartbreak of missed connections, to
unlock the door to my home in the world
tiny seeds embrace rain,
new earth wind-swept clean
to reveal a promise, a path
with heart, ancestral seekers
guide me, shining light
on life, unveiling a plan called B
what is of the essence now?
what is the only necessary thing?
what is the gift in this longing?

This month, Tweetspeak Poetry invited writers to build a rain-themed poem using the titles of books as inspiration…also known as “book spine poetry." The poems I've read so far have been amazing, and I couldn't help but be inspired to come out and play. Stop by Tweetspeak or if you're on Twitter, search for the #tsrain hashtag.
Then scan your own bookshelves and see what you can create!
