Poetry is prayer
Looking for the sacred
Healing force for trauma.

Training the heart
A body reborn.

Scope over knows
(nose)
Family does not know
Different realities.

Dinosaur left behind—another
Prop
On the floor. Museums works
With Beasts of Burden

How identity changes
Over time.

Moving
Enjoy
Moving
A Gift

To the Movers, thanks for letting me be a bridge: Patricia Spears Jones www.psjones.com
