Cross Step by R. Gerry Fabian

                          I have a picture
                          of my daughter
                          when she was four.
                          The look of determination
                          on her face is fierce,
                          tenacious and firm.
                          It is a wolverine resolve.

                          Now she is seventeen,
                          with a high school smile
                          and puppy charms.

                          As a basketball player,
                          she glides like a water-spider
                          toward the lay up.
                          Yet every now and then
                          as she scrambles
                          for a rebound –
                          she still flashes
                          that look.
