Sunday Thoughts...

Sometimes you find a poem that just says everything you want to express, especially the first two verses... Enjoy!

Finding Her Here
by Jayne Relaford Brown

I am becoming the woman I’ve wanted,
grey at the temples,
soft body, delighted,
cracked up by life
with a laugh that’s known bitter
but, past it, got better,
knows she’s a survivor—
that whatever comes,
she can outlast it.
I am becoming a deep
            weathered basket.

I am becoming the woman I’ve longed for,
the motherly lover
with arms strong and tender,
the growing up daughter
who blushes surprises.
I am becoming full moons
            and sunrises.

I find her becoming,
this woman I’ve wanted,
who knows she’ll encompass
who knows she’s sufficient,
knows where she’s going
and travels with passion.
Who remembers she’s precious,
but knows she’s not scarce—
who knows she is plenty,
            plenty to share.

Thursday Thoughts

I just had to share this...

It reminded me of the hours I would spend as a child looking at the colour illustrations and basic information on each planet in our solar in the front of our BIG Times atlas...

I used to wonder if the rings around Saturn made any noise as they hula-hooped around the planet... Now I know...
