She looks to the horizon

As if ready for flight

Winged with light

Strummed strings tight

Ready, poised for grace

Head raised

Staring down fears and frowns

With a slight smile

Shrugging off the cares cast by others

Letting fall the yoke of years

Choosing to detach

Drawing strength from a patient place

Leaning on this moment

Before challenging the headwinds

To come as they will

"Ready", poetry by Roshan James, Kitchener Waterloo Ontario Canada
