The Top . . .

~~ a quindecim
by tkbrown
Spinning! Spinning! Still, but Spinning!
The contents are naught but a blur . . . 
open windows appear opaque.
Seemingly still, but moving fast
on triangular pedestal
perched tall, straight above the tip.
Bulbous body -- visual blip --
spinning, spinning while standing tall.
How long can such sweet posture last?
Not one jiggle the spin doth make --
spinning, spinning -- faster, faster.
Then just a slight wobble is seen,
then one more if your eyes are keen --
then the top can be seen again.
Old Fashioned Toy Top

I believe family is a gift from God and should be treated as such. I love writing with a broad array of intent and purpose. I have written poetry virtually all my life, and much nonfiction in academia. My expanded efforts in all areas have finally taken off in retirement. I have much to accomplish now that I have the time. Other hobbies are painting, researching ancestry and myriad topics for my writing, knitting, crocheting, cooking -- always trying new recipes and always cooking for my health. I have many other hobbies, but these seem to dominate most of my time. Oh, did I mention I am the mother of three grown children and grandmother of seven. I have been blessed immensely and am the happier for it.https://twitter.com/tkbrownwriter/photo
