the fearless teacher

she is
the hands behind the paintbrush
the eyes behind the lens
collecting beauty, creating a life she loves

she is 
soaring sky-blue eyes
honey brown curls
a beauty unlike anyone else

she is 
effortless, enduring patience
taking smaller hands in hers
to show them all they can and will do

she is
the first one up the mountain 
the last to leave the party
never missing an early morning or late night

she is 
my home and my adventure
a fearless, resilient friend
who happens to share my last name

she is
brave, smart and decisive
going her own way through life
heart open, pack light
