“Barely” by Safiyyah Motaib

asleep in a tornado

eye of the storm,

not so calm anymore;

houses in the distance,

stamped from a board game

barely getting rained on

between skies painted with winds

crying to be free;

how strange







Safiyyah Motaib is working on her first collection of poetry, but in the meantime, she writes.  (allpoetry.com/shapeshifter)
