She Is...


Yesterday
she was translucent parchment
delicate and beautifully made
fragile to the touch but
everlasting and imperishable
prepared for the ink

Today
she feels like finely ground sugar
or sand that has been tumbled
and thrown to shore by the sea
year upon year of
abrasion

Tomorrow
she will be a fortress
the stones of The Algarve
upright and powerful
enduring and forever
yours

she is
