Board of Directors

Part 1 The table at the center, enormous in its role that day One by one men and women took their place Striped suits, pencil skirts, black, navy and gray Their combined wealth of knowledge, filling the space. We were there, our company, sharing progress to goals Laying bare our inner workings, our road-map to success Each leader, in turn, speaking to their defined roles The committees, doling advice, for two hours, till recess.

The Sun pales in orange glory, An End… to another day’s story. The stars shimmer, the moon … Continue reading Light
