terra firma

terra firma

sifting back
through rack and ruin
from decades of debris
desire climbs
with each new
stretch of time
mileage
across ranges
seasons states and seas
now i am the woman
i have been waiting for

    Wow Nancy, I love your poetry. It is so moving and resonates in the core of my body. The jacket of the book is BEAUTIFUL. Congratulations
