Poem – What a Plot Twist You Were

It’s rather late on what has been an incredibly blustery Saturday, full of sidewalk music, reminiscing with childhood books, and a multitude of snuggles with a certain curly-headed, bright-eyed little girl. I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to share with you today, but then I stumbled upon this poem and decided on it for a few reasons…

  1. It uses bookish metaphors and I’ve been reading a lot of books recently.
  2. It talks about music and today has been full of it, from some rather unexpected corners.
  3. It references a sunset, and we had a softly magnificent one tonight.

So, for those reasons, here is a poem that I wrote, not really sure where I was going. But I went somewhere, and this is the result!


What a plot twist you were,

with your edelweiss soul and your waltzing eyes.

You dropped into my life with gentle, calloused hands

scattering heart-joy as you went.


I didn’t expect you,

you starry-eyed dancer,

you daughter of the dawn and all things new.


I didn’t know that I was missing

your whisper in the purpling dusk,

your lark-song of hope that soared with

wings of moonshine and midsummer madness.


When you came, the music

changed key and took me with it –

come love, let’s fly together into

this devoted sunset.


So there you go – I hope you enjoyed this poem of mine!

I’d love to chat about it with you in the comments! What plot twists have you encountered recently?

    1. What a thought! I will admit that she wasn’t on my mind when I wrote this poem… But it works very well with her character! Great idea! 🤗
