leadership


leadership
-for little one and g.
and for the one who feels she has nothing else to teach me

i see you, i do, watch
you draw wheels in the soil
planning for the hour or crisis ahead,
and even though youve said
"dont follow me"
i parrot you, i do, arrange
a circle of stone on the table,
i look for direction,
-just this subtle inflection-
a prayer to change course.

Sounds like Little One and G.

life is full of learning from others, and it also holds a fear of being followed...i am hopeful that g. sees the beauty in little ones love and admiration for him and not just the annoyance
