Skyscrapers in the wind 

I don’t what captured my eye most: the image, the poem, or the excerpt from Pablo Neruda. Perhaps it is the way they fit together into one. When two people are meant for each other, there is an entwining that is magical.

Souldier Girl

We are skyscrapers in the wind

Forged In the center of a hurricane
Collided as one we bend
Tell me you love me
Let me feel your hand
Let our flesh melt into eachother
As the harpist leads the band
Calmly sinking below sea level
Their music resonates in crystalline bubbles
We rise faster and faster
As triumph outruns disaster
Tell me you love me
Melt your words into my skin
I can no longer hear the music
Yet the harp is in my hands

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.
