“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” – Winston Churchill
she stood for listening
and air that never burned your nostrils
she led by digging weeds with you
side-by-side overheated or drenched.
she never let fear ride in the front seat
and forever reminded me
the sun’s position
changes everyone’s shadow
