                 …with a broken wing
Expressions of
the Human Spirit

poems by Ronaye Hudyma


Whether contemporary, classic, or peppered with Elizabethan eloquence, this profound ensemble of 130 poems is not stationary. They move as if conducted with a maestro’s baton –fluid between the euphoria of life and love, the drama, the anguish of death and loss, with every nuance of human emotion spilling upon the pages.

They are poignant words written with the transparency of youth, gathering maturity and experience, evolving to wisdom, into the spiritual realm.

This is not just poetry. There are a million stories in each poem. Once for each of us. From the teenager discovering their individuality, the young adult challenged by relationships and the world around them, to the Elder denizens of Earth, who cherish their memories as veterans of life, this is a book to be read and reread, a keepsake to console, embrace and affirm your recognition of the truth within yourself that is already there.




To the all-seeing half hidden moon

lurking in the dark behind the clouds:

Why be wary?

It was a moment with no past, no future,

a moment, not of passion, but compassion,

resurrected in a poem.

I held him with my heart and arms

touching him with understanding,

letting his tears wash down my face

already wet with his pain.

You witnessed in silence, with wisdom, without judgment

the swell of sweet agony surging upward–

pounding, pushing, rushing from door to door–

my throat, my eyes, my lips.

The pull was by the finger tips

and toward the window

To view the sky’s teardrops….

to accompany ours.

A starved heart did swell

when the song was ended—full,

so full of sweeping space

when the unresolved chord found its progression;

a perfect cadence of completion. 

Then back to quiescence and the solitude of despair.
