I happen to co-exist with someone whose birthday coincides with International Women’s Day. I love to share words of witness with her on this day where the world’s women are celebrated while I also get to celebrate the otherworldly being she is.
I am currently in a phase of absorption with regards to writing, so I am not expressing myself with words much at all. I chose to put pen to paper and see what words came out and then make a choice of whether to share or not. What came out was a short poem, which I choose to share. If you enjoy any part of it, or something resonates with you then please feel free to share if that feels good to you; you are safe here.
