"Just a little bit more" to those "shining sunrays" of "an orange curtain of rainfall"....Moon, Womoon, you poetically paint so well! :)

C D,

A very good tribute to women power. It is a fact that a woman can do wonders if she puts her heart into it.

Take care

Wow! This reminds me of something I wrote last year with a similar tone but it didn't work out. You however, pulled it off magnificently. I can literally feel every line. Great writing!!

Mary said...

I love this. Thinking about on your writing table is a book of poems! I agree that one has to keep writing those poems until the book is finished. One must then publish those poems, if for no one else but you, one must do this! All should take your words to heart. I do. I am about to self publish my third poetry book....just for me. I hope you will write YOUR book too.

This is a lovely poem - the ink flowed so smoothly and creatively !

The encouragement offered here, the nudge many creative women (and men) need, feels like an invitation, permission to fulfill one's destiny.

True and so beautiful as Truth is.
Women will write their best poem when all of them feel as free as men are. The salvation of the world is in our hands, same as it was in Mary's 2012 years ago in Bethlehem...
This poem has been written by many women guiding your hand and it will be completed at the end of times.
Best wishes and thanks for visiting my garden.
:)
