Sometimes words are the only “beautiful way to spin the earth beneath my hands” in order to try and make sense (and see the beauty) of it all.

Just read your post following this poem, and so appreciated all you shared in that one to further my understanding of the poem. Your long sleep reminds me of my years wasted in alcoholism and the poem is shockingly familiar in parts. Just excellent, Maggie.
