    they call her blessed...
    she's ninety...
    good age huh??
    ..lived through bus boycotts
    and Vietnam...
    cotton pickin' days and
    civil rights
    uncivil nights-
    ..she witnessed her sons die
    before her...
    didn't vote
    didn't pass the literacy tests
    but her soul bled a hell of a note which said
    "the tears of joy in my eyes- over my long life l shed"
    huh-
    ...in her clouded misery... an answer?
    must be faith that keeps her
    must be her humility that draws the community
    to her wisdom...
    must be the world that gave her that pitch- that tone that
    grabs your attention..
    l must mention when her gray eyes look at you
    she throws the book at you- she doesn't have to read-
    you do.
    she's gone now...
    she knew God in her own way..
    taught us how to pray
    she didn't finish school
    but we learned by her rule and graduated....
    this woman..
    she was blessed.

    Sounds as though she was filled with wisdom, knowledge, and care. This was very warmly posed, brought a smile to my face.

    ...Your words of wisdom and profundity of presence
    have been missed and this peace...this peace...this peace
    reminds us of the struggle of our elders,
    reminds us to love them and to honor them
    and to always appreciate the lessons that
    they teach us...because we never know when
    they will transform...

    ~Beautiful Flow~
    Much love, "A"​
