A Message from Alexis
a stillness in me
that I’m continually searching for
in my life as a woman.
I can be falling off a Glass Mountain
(that might have taken years to climb)
all the imaginary creatures from the deep
(the place where colors are born – from darkness)
and know exactly where to land
(without pushing, without hesitation)
so that each mark, every stroke
knows in her bones
the rich and perpetual relationship
in which she belongs.
