Becoming


I watched the documentary

Becoming last night

Michelle Obama’s new book

She inspires me

Her drive to keep on going

In spite of the push back she’s received

Every person she meets

She asks what brings you joy

Riding on her inspiration

Within a millisecond

Of a moment I ask myself

What brings me joy?

If I imagine I live

In an energy world

With no forms

Only color energy

I would see children

And four-legged beings

As bright colors

Moving bouncing exploring

I would see houses bursting

With color

where the love congregates

brought together by the pandemic

I would see gardens and

Natural surroundings

Lit up with an iridescence
