National Poetry Month 2020: The Flipside

The Flipside

Your fear stings like a fresh paper cut.
The flipside is brave determination to never give up.

The changes are rollercoaster fast -- disorienting, dizzying.
The flipside is the steady predictable approach of Spring.

Our connection is like the two sides of a coin:
the flipside says, whether we are together or apart, we are joined.

  1. Great metaphor for these times (heck, for life.) Tis a reminder for me to not just look AT things, but to look BEHIND THEM, too. Thanks!
