The Vision of Barrett

materializing down the airport corridor,
tall, blond and beautiful
joy wreathing her smile.

She proceeds toward me 
solid in her being
really here in the flesh
embodied family, spirit.

And the the next day
writing together in the coffee shop
elbow to elbow
each focusing on our own project
side by side force of energy.

She’s my model of sure strength and goodness.
Is is she who finds a need to fulfill–
strength in her very upright bones.
