“At the center of your being you have the answer-you know who you are and what you want”-Lao Tzu


by Carmen H Gray

Mariquita, was it only by chance

That your silently bright presence

Compelled me to glance

In a momentary way

As you traversed the mirror

Above the piano display

Your crimson shell of resilience

Facing toward me

The delicate vulnerable brilliance

Of your underside reflecting

How you have taught me

That not everything needs protecting

And that each moment captured

Is the sum of it all

Only fragments fractured

Gleaming in flight

Signifying the meaning

 Of travelling light
