Climbing

She’d faltered, fallen, her soul pummeled, plundered, yet she remained, wounded, broken inside, but not ready to die within. Always climbing, ascending, her heart ragged, jagged, yet she continued on, haggard, because within was more than imagined. ©September 2014, June … Continue reading

Self-Examination in a Time of Historical Change

Polly Chromatic

They called her Polly Chromatic, though it wasn’t her name. They said her real name didn’t matter, making one up was just the same. They didn’t count on her owning the name or wearing the colors with pride. Far better … Continue reading

Collective Strength
