filtering the pieces out

she rides the train south

it's not always easy to keep fierce

enough she cries out 

 of the bitterness

and steps into the gusting of a warm spring day


  1. I have a feeling that the warm spring day will dissipate her fierceness. What do you think?

  2. I love this poem.

  3. I love the idea that 'it's not always easy to keep fierce' How true. Lovely poem!

  4. Such a beautiful choosing of words!

    I am immersed in deep winter right now, so it is a wonderful thought
    "the gusting of a warm spring day"

    You create so beautiful poems, aspiritofsimplicity.

    I do not know why, but somehow, this one brought to mind Emily Dickinson's "A route of evanescence".

    Thank you!
