|Original Photo-creation by Joan Ellen Gage|
Trying to make things happen with sheer will,
is a little like trying to jump-start an engine with a feather.
Never-the-less, I am trying just that.
Progress is slow; however, there is progress,
even if that change is internal,
and is recognized by myself and no-one else.
Perhaps this is the secret revealed,
discovering a difference, an awakening within,
a seed unfolding that I, myself, planted.
From this seed, a flower grows.
It is delicate, yet strong, gentle, yet bold.
I feel this unfurling within me,
filling my body cavity with beauty, and purpose.
I breathe deeply and inhale its heady perfume.
Women, find your heart’s seed and nurture it.
Keep it safe until you are ready to bloom.
Feed it hope, cradle it with love,
and let the light of your heart’s desire awaken it.
Let your joy blossom!
