A poem for International Women's Day, "New Frontiers," by Joan Ellen Gage




NEW FRONTIERS

I have to say that
the women I meet these days, as
peers and otherwise,
are smart and savvy.
They are really out there
breaking up the male empire
and enjoying it.

This sisterhood of women
is such a positive force, and
whether we realize it, or
not, the truth is,
women are changing
their worlds, and
it is apparent to them.

Even if the rest of the planet cannot
see this alteration,
It does not matter. It is
our own perception that does.
Women have visualized
a new reality, and made it theirs,
they now operate within this new order.

We are cowgirls of
the new frontier,
Making and breaking up rules,


we ride bareback into
dangerous deserts, canyons,
and boardrooms,
while twirling our iPhones.

And, when we wear our silver spurs,
they haven’t got
a chance!

From the book Water Running Downhill,
by Joan Ellen Gage

Finding your heart's seed and nuturing it: "Eau de Woman," by Joan Ellen Gage

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!

from the book, Embracing Your Inner Cheerleader,
