       Georgia O’Keeffe – Oriental Poppies, 1928.

She walked
In the dark
Not knowing
Who she was
Or if anyone
Was watching
Over her
I wish there
Was a way
For her

She watched
The birds
As they flew
Across the sky
Darkness was
Her only
Refuge
I wish there
Was a way
For her

She was too far
To watch life
Seep through
The hands of love
And her voice
It carried
With the wind
I wish there
Was a way
For her

She watched
The ash
As it fell
From the sky
She fought the
Fire burning
In her eye
I wish there
Was a way
To say goodbye
