ancient inclinations

 

my mother calls to me

             …stand, daughter

my father calls to me

           …sing, child

my relatives say to me

         …paint, young’in 

rhythms of all ages

         …drive me

to dance, to breathe,

         …to soar

their lives compel me

        …to write.
