My Brave Warrior Woman......For Kelly

I so admire
your tenacity,
ability to forge
ahead despite
the obstacle.

One year ago,
mired in chaos,
you struck out.
Marched ahead,
fearless toward
a dream, fashioned
for yourself and
the little ones.
I love to see
You dancing.

At Point Reyes today, I watched

snow fall to the gray green sea,
whitecaps swept the cragged outcroppings.

Two boys in striped caps ran along the

sandy shore, laughing, heads back,

tongues out, to catch the odd windfall.

A black dog with curly ears loped ahead,

barked, flushed a flock of sandpipers

into the strange thick sky.
