can be known
by her way with words.

scarcely know her
(we’ve met twice briefly).

There is an illness
which comes and goes.
There is a wellness

which is here to stay.
It goes past the body
to the human Body.

There is a book of poems.
It is of a seasoning.
And in its way

it adds a seasoning
to the whole.
I am glad to know her.

On her birthday
I say thankyou
for her words.
