Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength. – G.D. Anderson
Inspiring Women of WordPress
National Domestic Violence Awareness Month falls in October. November 25th is International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Of course the holidays is a time of giving, showing appreciation, and love. After that comes my favorite day – Valentine’s Day.
I want to do something special for some inspiring women I have met here in WordPress. Sort of spreading and sharing the inspiration.
Starting Monday through the week leading up to Valentine’s Day, I will introduce a different Inspiring Woman of WordPress. You will meet doctors, poets, great motivators, teachers, designers, and mothers, the most sacred (and thankless) of professions.
I will still be posting poetry (and my other nonsense) but a different talented lady will be highlighted with every post. On some weeks I will break my self imposed two posts a week rule.
I hope you join me to celebrate the world’s greatest resource – WOMAN.
sitting on this lonely beach i know you have never been mine yet i wonder if you are alone or nestled in someone else’s arms has he ever kissed your silences embraced the painful tears that fall like autumn leaves inside your soul does he fill your nights with light or inspire romance in your eyes will he make your darkness his own as he watches over you tonight, my love i long to be the moon

bless the morning sun
that warms your soft cheek
the syntax of your happiness
the affectionate words
that I never dared to speak
tonight, I quietly whisper
a hymn that I once knew
before the altar of your words
I kneel and pray for you
When I made my move to Florida, my precious friend Maria Elena of A Gypsy at Heart said the words “oceans apart, only a thought away.” The words were so inspiring, I asked her permission to use them in a poem.
Please, follow A Gypsy At Heart. She will introduce you to the people, sights, and scents of the wonderful places she visits giving every destination (Hamburg, Bangkok, Provence, and so many others) their own intriguing personality.
gazing at the vast waters between us one consolation keeps me breathing i can still think of you for it is our brief conversations that fill my bones with hope igniting a burning passion in my soul that no bottomless sea could ever douse tonight, like every other night my heart seeks solace oceans apart only a thought away
never understood the theory of everything yet I am smart enough to theorize my wine would be sweeter coming from your lips the stars more brilliant in the galaxy of your eyes no need to hypothesize don’t always comprehend what you are doing to me for I am a virgin in love since everything is so new today, I finally understood i wasn’t born until the moment i discovered you
