"This"

by Poet t.l. sanders

Note: I have added links so to deepen your experience.

aRose a whisper into the window

awakens to chasten the query while chasing the quarry

the distance traveled not by miles but in minutes

this momentum lessens the limits

for siblings living in infinite centuries

July the sixteenth

Elizabeth Jennings

organist, teacher, worship leader

is one score and four years running on

her way to Sunday service for God’s sake

in this minute—Ms. Jennings—by faith

breaks the color barrier

she Rosa Parks herself on the streetcar next

to nascent words whispered

into the window

in the fifth row

on the metro, Montgomery

Will

you ride with me

this quote grows hope evergreen and

persistence climbs high like Ivy’s

flowers tower ivory towers with one goal: courage
