She is known

She is known

 
 


She is known by the land she speaks 

She is known by the morning light hovering over the hills in Tennessee

She is known by the hummingbirds that come by to suck the sweetness

She is known by the rose bushes papa planted - fifty exactly

She is known by the seeds of cockscombs shedding the humid heat and the memories of past years

She is known by the dragon fruit flower that opens up once a year

She is known by her neighbors who listen and laugh with her mundane anecdotes 

She is known by the sky that has not yielded much rain this year

She is known well

Mama, you are known so well
