Faceted~OctPoWriMo Day 10

Many Women
Many Women

A jewel with many facets

Shining the wild light

Of the feminine power

The bear protecting her young

The priestess inspiring the masses

Rosa refusing to concede

Tahirih removing her veil

These are my heroes

My inspiration

For the wildness of my soul

The prompt today is my favorite so far:

“Wild Writing: Wild writing comes from the wild mind. For me it is accessing that part of myself that is primal, that part of myself that doesn’t listen to societal conventions. Dancing takes me to this place like nothing else can. It takes me out of my body and into that space of imagination, possibilities, and no thought. I know you’re probably wondering how you can write if you are in a place of no thought. Well, that is the place where your ego steps out of the way and deep connection happens. It is a place where your writing can fall onto the page almost of its own volition. Try it for yourself, put on some music and dance into and out of your own way and let loose your wild writing.”~Morgan Dragonwillow

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  2. I love the artwork… and your poetry.
    May have to catch up later in the week.. my daughter from Texas is visiting for the first time after fives years.
    Then again… she may spend time with friends that are so important as we get older…
    Peace and love

  3. I’ll confess I had to wiki-search Tahirih…but the poem was striking enough that I couldn’t just let my ignorance stand on that score…so I did…and I learned something new. Very nicely done. Clean poetry, impactful – nothing wasted. I liked it very much.
