Poem "Fractions of Me"

test on Friday, 1/13

2/6 of me is a poet:
Inside my mind,
skies, seas, people, beasts
swirl around waiting to be picked
for the next poem.

1/6 of me is a mother
wiht 3 sons, grown and gone,
a mother mostly by cell or e-mail.

1/6 of me glides through the turquoise water,
pedals with the wind in my ears:
a swimmer and a biker.

2/6 o me is a wife
hiking down creek beds
where mountain lions have been.

All the 6ths of me
2/6 + 1/6 + 1/6 + 2/6
make a whole.

The whole me.
