a Photographic Journey by Meryl

Spin

whisper whine
mumble howl
forming words
feeling foul

somersault
cartwheel spin
powerless
no win

  1. This is a special image. I am an avid fan of spinning, as a form of meditation (i was doing it before I was aware of the Whirling Dervishes) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sufi_whirling I think kids instinctually know spinning will center them. I loved both your explanation in the Learning To See narrative, and the witty poem above. It’s true that we live in perpetual motion, but this kind of play just brings one back back to he/she really is. Love it Meryl!

    • Such a thoughtful comment as always, Robyn…I hadn’t thought of it as a centering technique…thanks for adding yet another dimension to so much spinning around us…:)

      • Most welcome Meryl. Yes – another dimension – a ‘circling within the circle’ so to speak! 🙂
