Lavern Brown-Turner

Jamaica | 1964 - 2011

Tribute to my sister Lavern Brown-Turner
The flower as beautiful as it is
Is not exempt from the winds or storm
It stands still
Bracing for what is to come
Its survival is not to fear
A petal falls here and there
And although its physical form changes
The true beauty
Comes from its roots
That is always strong
That is its true beauty all along
Sharon Bradshaw
