walking slowly confident and steadfast

Image: Slowly but Surely (here)

R for Ready for Resilience

walking slowly confident and steadfast
not really aware of the surroundings

flushed with a feeling of magnanimity
gleefully ready for resilience joy and satisfaction

knowing fully well the struggle
long hours of sweat and tears

is now over, victory in hand
on commencement day

  1. The readiness is almost palpable in this quadrille, Hank. I especially like the line: ‘flushed with a feeling of magnanimity’. If only everyone felt like that!

  2. What a great capture of the emotion of commencement day! Well said.

  3. Nice line: "flushed with a feeling of magnanimity"

  4. Nice sense of accomplishment after all the sweat and tears. I can relate😊.


  5. I could feel the sense of accomplishment and empowerment, especially in this line... "flushed with a feeling of magnanimity". What a great use of the word. I feel sorry for all those unable to hold their graduation/commencement ceremonies at this time.
