For Susan Tuttle


Dashing, splashing, vibrant colors

left in the wake

of a dashing, splashing, vibrant person


Spirited smile, thoughtful teacher

sincere critiques, always wanting us

to leave the middle ground, and 

soar to the heights of what is possible


The waves of life tossed her about

overwhelmed at times, she kept going

her favorite expression…lol


Susan gave and gave 

until she had no choice

but to finally rest 


This is not an epilogue

for we carry her good will 

and shared knowledge with us

always, never ending
