for Julia, my true north

she is
her signature curly hair
sturdy black boots
honey-brown amber eyes
that see you for you

she is
a record spinning, 
pourover steaming,
a seat saved for you
in a crowded coffee shop

she is
true north,
always there to remind you
who you are
& where you’re going

she is
burning incense
low light
cathartic, ethereal yoga classes
that let you fall in back love with yourself

she is
bright, loyal, beloved
a leader
followed by so many more
than she’ll ever realize
