Photograph of Fawn Rising (Nahnee) by Erin Liberty Dunn, age 6
Everything I ever lost
Was during a time of war ~
And, you will hear me say, smilingly
Oh, yes! I lost that in a time of war when conjugal visions
I, considered everyone’s favorite
former role model,
jest to cover the broken shards of gilded memories
that linger ~
While I simultaneously embrace change.
Change that propels me through the dance of aging ~
Old woman, where do you hide?
The greatest war is within myself.
