The resolution of wings

May 3, 2018

(dedicated to the Butterly Book Nook)

Here is the place
where a community blossoms.

Where hope
still finds
the right amount
of air to rise,
to spread its wings,
in the deflating aftermath
of a tragedy
that grounded us.

Here is the place
where we will no longer
be cocooned in sadness
because our ascension
knows no fear.

curiosity becomes
the smallest idea
can become a masterpiece,
and art will connect us
through colorful

children of all ages
will come and perch themselves
on the mighty shoulders
of an angel’s dream,
finally realized:

One woman’s
life-long mission
to make sure
we all
knew the beauty
and freedom
of flight.
