My editor and friend from way back wrote this.


a crucifix of
weathered board and nails
suspending line and laundry
above hard-packed dust

clothespins braced
between her fingers and teeth
struggling against
billowing sheets
gust after gust
lifts the veil
hanging wash

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
