...hey, I figure we are all just one step removed from a crash-landing. Who is immune? None, I'd guess. Terrific poetics here. Thank you.

This one is going in my favorites. I love how you have expressed this with such wonderful metaphorical imagery. Excellent!

Love this! My husband and I have been breaking glasses and chipping dishes this week - odd gathering of shattering. One glass managed to bounce on the floor this morning without breaking. Perhaps we are on the upside of this phenomena. :)
I like how you bring in "someone else's breath". This almost feels like a gentle breeze blowing through glass windchimes, waiting for the big wind. THank you.

This poem has left me almost speechless. It's beautiful, the analogy of glass making applied to you the human. Marvelous stuff.

Christel - I enjoyed this a lot. "hollow interior filled by/someone else's breath" is so rich in itself, and the surrounding lines provide this idea a nice scaffold. I imagine you have an identity for the "someone else" in mind, but I'm glad you trusted the reader to interpret this as well. Very well done indeed.

This precious gem is of a beauty that silences. Congratulations on POTD...

Life and blown glass have much in common. There is or can be far more strength than expected and yet the fragility of both can be a very real concern for all. Nice write lady.
