Still Life

She is still
in the torrent of storms.
She is still
at the heart of crisis.
She is still
where anger confronts her
or becomes her.
She is still
embraced by her tears.
She is still
heartbroken and disappointed,
mostly in herself.
She is still
insecure and dissembled.
She is still
teetering on a cliff-
wavering between opposing sides,
unable to make any final decisions.
She is still
in the presence of love
and light.
She is still
animated, excitable;
swept away on joyful days.
She is still
in love with life,
in love with hers.
She is still
writing her story,
singing her song,
blazing her own trail.
She is still
creating life in her wake
at least with her art.
She is still
touching minds
wearing her heart on her sleeve.
She is still
at the epicenter,
the calm of the eye,
because she is
still life.
