Poem of the Week: You Blew Me Away

I mostly post my poetry first on Instagram, (unless it is a patron-exclusive poem). Then, each Sunday here on the blog, I post the poem that has got the most Insta likes.

If you’re on Instagram, let’s follow each other. You’ll find my account Orna Ross.poetry here.

The poems are inspired by photographs, sometimes taken by me, sometimes by others.

My most popular poem on Instagram this week was, “You Blew Me Away”.

The picture was sent to me by @karenlotter, just as I finally got the idea of how to end a novel I’ve been carrying for years. In perfect serendipity, it expressed exactly how I was feeling in that big moment.

And now for this week’s poem:

You Blew Me Away

after long years
book ending crests in mind blows
body open
