A Poem for lil:

a woman I met online

once or twice we had a video chat

I find her terribly alluring

she puts me in my place when needed

but hugs me in virtuality too

she is a harbor in the storm

even when she's in a storm

she's a rock

even when she's being smashed by bigger rocks

her humor cuts through me

her sincerity and bravery cuts deeper

her care of others, deeper still

I love lil

.

.

a lil-ku:

a woman of peace

substantively amazing

always inspiring
