Standing Ovations

by Dixiedaisy   Dec 17, 2015

Toasting mallows
over graying ashes
of fir and maple twigs
that spit and sputter

penchant for the
sweet rather than sour
nacreous calibre
familiar to the taste of pain,
too stubborn to swallow defeat

she dances with ribbons of fire
designing her own destiny
lessons to live by in the play of life
Her strength,
worth a thousand...

Standing Ovations
