Chameleon

Her features were sculpted and defined
Her rippling hair dark and  straight lined
Her body erect, tall, shapely, untwined

She loved to sketch, paint and etch
Coloring her world with colors n such
Moods made them molten, intense much

Art and activism wise she was straight as an arrow
In these she knew her mind right through her marrow
All else made her heart flutter like a sparrow

She said words that were quite pleasing but light
Her promises were empty, such was her plight
She was often flaky and shaky, try as she might

She changed coloring to suit current company
Becoming charming or brash or downright funny
Like a blank canvas she donned colors for harmony

Thus she carries on in life trying to please one n all
Taking cues from those who have her in their thrall
Pleasing some, perplexing others, much to their gall

Showing her a mirror cannot be dared
Unconditional love forces she be spared
As this chameleon is much loved n cared

The humility of a deacon, The adaptability of a chameleon, The hope of an optimist, The courage of a hero,
The wisdom of a serpent, The gentleness”
