I've been walking a difficult road, but a rewarding one.
A road of self discovery.
A road of expanding horizons.
And finding yet more to learn and grow and know about my Self.
I wrote a poem this week and, in departure from my usual blog posts, am going to share it here. And yes, Michele, dear heart... I'll provide you with a soundtrack, as promised...
As I share my written 'art' with you, I also share with you a part of my Self. Knowing so many of my readers — so many of you dear, beloved friends, and others as-yet-unknown friends — I choose to trust you with a glimpse of the very heart of Me.
She's not hereThe woman you 'know'She's just not hereLook againSee not expectationSee...Finally see... Me
See, hearUnderstand anewMeet her againWho stands before you?Gently explore... study... ask...What do you see?Who?
This is Woman AwakeAlive, Vibrant, TrueHer time, her day is nowHer will to claim it strongSpirit freeSoul courageHeart creativeLife Succulent
Can you walk her road - unpredictable?Her life - unexpected, unplanned?Her whim, idea, her impulse?Follow her on roads unknown?Exchange safe for uncertainty?Embracing it?
For no acquiescence,No compliance,No compromise,Travels This roadWith This womanCourage, Zeal & PassionAccompany her steps

Can you do that too?Are you able?Is that you?
