Click! Goes the Shutter…

Matriarchal Ancestry

Work of sight is done; now do the heart work on the pictures within you.
Rainier Maria Rilke

Click! goes the shutter on the glitter that is you!
The vibrant color of your stance:
The chance that I might model you:
An athlete’s discipline.

Click! goes the shutter on the chatter that you speak!
The truth articulated:
I want to plant the words:
Then cultivate their growth.

Click! goes the shutter on the matter that you bring!
The vision that you carry:
To the altar of your life:
To offer as a blessing to us all.

A dedication to Emily.
