coming into her power

Rachel at Ten

coming into her power of self--
grounded, brilliant, beautiful,
and now making quantum leaps 
of understanding and action,

for the Passover Seder yesterday
she wrote a script about the plagues and freedom,
she was the playwright, the direction, the narrator,
till she brought in a grandmother to help,

the power of her adolescence is coming,
world, get ready for her tours de force.
