International Women’s Day (2014)

To my many mother-sisters and my wife

I celebrate the women
who have taught, elevated me
with patience, time
how exemplar
of
life, love, introspection
sensitivity, truth, joy
laughter, kindness, truth

no, never perfect
often in misunderstanding, grief, heartbreak
times of bliss
via distance, impassable ramparts
still
hold in my heart
gratitude
love
forgiveness

because you taught me
this way, is just
