motivate me


the poet
who sews
and belongs
in words
and between sheets
of paper
(in books).
the seamstress
who learned on her own
to read thoughts
and patterns
on paper
(and in looks).
the girl who remembers
the faults in her lines
and fabric;
she's moving.
nowhere new,
except for the new places.
somewhere old,
except and including the old embraces.
on to books and believers,
bent pages
and mile-long to-do lists.
going closer to winged edges
and freedom seekers
and flight high peaks.
Bringing one small suitcase
and a heart unenchained by
a handle,
and paper.
the girl leaves a world and
begins a life.

I love the pictures you choose. I often would love to sit down and go over some of your blogs with you, especially the poems....
