Jane's poem of today!

Jane says, "Good morning everyone.  I am sitting today with fear and courage, apology."



It was so brief.

Our sleeves touched.
I didn¹t notice.
Then from behind, "excuse me."
Like a voice through anesthesia.
"The lesson for today is excuse me."
Like a lover leaving.
I turned.
Our eyes met.
There was the human face of history¹s hungry gift.
There was everything the rules had taught me.
There was where the damage lay.
There was the place my courage failed.
"I'm sorry."
