Marcie S Millard:


Movement of lilting laughter.

Acquiescing to her creative pleasures.

Stonewall flags of pinks and lavender and blooming


Singing in rich sounds of

Joy and sorrow.

And confusion and hate.

And love and love and love and love

Silent tears of God's gift

Echoing forth in my life

Cutting loose now and then

Hidden secrets

Told only to

Her own personal jesus.
