‘From Your Shoulders’ A Poem by Tracey Wimperly

From Your Shoulders

I stand on your shoulders

Lifted high onto this perch

With trusted hands and

By the strength that is you.

From here, I can see for miles,

The comings and goings of our dusty paths

That crisscross, dip and dogleg,

Then bring us together again and again.

You carry me as if I was a feather

The weight of this sister-ness

Impossibly light, an effortless load;

How is it that we seem to float?

Beautiful friend, sister, warrior –

Lean in to our journey ahead,

And in rhythmic lockstep

Carry me forward with you.
