just as great the aim, I see,
our own bravery to unfurl.
Noeleen, in closure of 2012, in view of 2013,
& in thanks of your visits, comments,
& sharing moments with me.
I do wish to credit this artist,
but it was a postcard I bought without purpose YEARS ago – simply for its beauty, imagination, inspiration.
Then years LATER, I had the perfect recipient, wrote on the back, gave it away.
Obviously I couldn’t quite let it go, & took a photo of it.
I knew there’d be another perfect moment to share what it speaks.
To the artist: thank you. This is stunningly hopeful, to me.
