  1. It’s the fifth time I’ve come back to read and reread this poem . . . Why is that? Except that the whirlwind you describe so powerfully holds us all in its whirl . . . A vortex called ‘mortality’ which in the end will claim each of us, and yet not without the tug of the centrifuge of faith . . . Thank you!


  2. It reads as powerfully on the 6th reading as the ones before . . . As dark as the night, the poet still sings within you . . . Bravo!


  3. Wonderful. Stopped me in my tracks as I searched the net for visual whirlwinds. Really reminds me of a book character I’m writing about. Very inspirational words. Thank you for sharing, Paul. I hope you don’t mind me sharing on my blog and Facebook page.

  5. “There is much poetry in despair.” So true Paul. This is lovely, but quite sad, almost lonely. Life has been pretty good to me lately. Maybe that’s why I can’t seem to find the word these days. Some of my best work has come when I am filled with despair. Thanks for the wonderful read!
