To Pastor Anne – Mentor

Kite of Spirit-wind
the mention of Zambia lifts you
into currents of memory –
dancing, singing, preaching –
class ascends with you
the kite’s tail.

Breeze swoops you
in a prophetic direction:
“You have dreams,
abandon cynicism
let God have His way.”
We trail behind
not sure where this is going.
You reassure us, laughing:
“You’re in for the ride of your life!”

We descend,
spend last moments aloft
in prayer
then thump
onto earth again

drive home, eat lunch,
get back to work
dream of being kites ourselves
swooping, soaring
living dangerously
at Wind’s mercy.
