she gives us room             to breathe in the words,

bring our own                 hearts to the table, and fill

in the spaces.                 she leaves traces of white       that we might

write our own                   selves upon them,                  in between.

waterfalls of space           give us places to dream,             to ponder her

beautiful words;               to know she’s giving us             something to

think about.                    something to drink in                to our very skin,


make part of us.                she trusts us with her                 poetic heart,

the pieces of it                 she must trail behind,                 as she follows


her own trails                   of elegant thought,                     and we, delighted,




                                         follow her.
