after you speak

give silence time to consider

what has broken it


when someone speaks

let silence ponder every word

before you answer


until silence

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.”
Natasha Persaud
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.”
Darryl Price

“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.”
