feminism revisited

 

women who inspire

model nurturing spirit

sacrificial love

for sake of needier ones

thus contribute to own growth

 


See Ramblings of a Writer  for the Weekly Tanka Prompt:  “Inspire & Growth”.

all is sacred

grateful

Dedicated to my “sister” friend, Joyce, who recently let go of her mother’s hands…
 
strong women’s hands

shape my life and yours:

grandmas instill faith

aunts stitch laughter

sister friends en-courage

mothers mold hearts.

even if we can no longer

touch those dear hands,

we still hear the voices

of influence cheering us

on like birdsong

in a garden of grace.
