Day 263: The Wild Card (Jennifer)

Sassy and unexpected,
she challenges all your notions,
understanding that blindness
comes with asking no questions.

Gifted and caring,
sharing lessons from the heart,
reminds you that love is
every part of who we are.

Playful and firm,
she’s both knight and dragon,
when playing the damsel,
she will karate chop in a gown.

a tomboy, a joker,
so many characters in one
a friend, a challenger,
she will keep your toes.
until unaware,
you are taken by her charm
and all your secrets are disarmed.

AN: Yesterday was the birthday of my best friend Jennifer, the youngest in our high school group. She is a brilliant teacher. So this poem is inspired by the way she makes everyone around her feel and her positive impact on all of our lives.
