Poem #279 of 365

To be flanked by two women with
tears in both eyes

is like clutching a wing of two
mighty birds who've paused
to sing in my ear

and though i'm caressed
by the coo
that i hear

it is vital that i turn away
let them soar
as their vision comes clear

i had taught nothing
but only served to
remind them how:

to let go of their fear,
see goals come near,
and to realize
that recovery
and discovery
of self
is what we
all should revere.

(para Leti y su amiga)
