                 …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.





A young man stood beside his bride,

Smiled and looked into her eyes

And made a vow to love her.

Cinderella found her prince.

He took her heart and her innocence,

And swore there would be no other.

With a promise and a ring

She’d have everything.

She didn’t know it was Fool’s Gold.

Love is more than a wedding band

Now it’s quick silver slipping through her hands.

How could he leave her?

He’s being free while she’s being alone–

Says he’s searching for the mother lode.

Gone where the grass is greener.

All her life she believed

He was all she’d ever need.

The only gold at the end of the rainbow was Fools Gold.

Never had a single dream just for herself.

She was busy being Mrs. Somebody Else.


You can’t turn back the hands of time.

She’ll never be what he left behind.

The masquerade is over.

She learned that gild don’t make it gold,

They were fairy tales that she was told.

She’s wiser now, not just older.

While he looked for someone else

She looked and found herself,

And she knows it isn’t Fools Gold.
