after you speak
give silence time to consider
what has broken it
when someone speaks
let silence ponder every word
before you answer
looks back at you, asking
Have you heard?

“There is a physical lure to her poetry as it sits on the blank page, a cryptic, philosophical, and striking breath of fresh air that is swept in by her musings on life, death, and growth.”
Vine Leaves Literary Journal
“These are poems that live inside the everyday real world, but are called forth like a sweet warning bell from a place of genuine care and concern from the heart of a very good poet indeed.”
“Kurowska takes readers along on a journey in her poems to overcome real and imagined, external and internal hindrances in order to reconsider what is possible.”
