First Features of the New Year – hope, determination and pride.

To celebrate the new year, we have some beautful art and writing from several of our new members, as well as some from our ‘oldies’. It is so heartening to see the quality of work that is coming into the group.

This week, I have chosen art and poems that show different facets of ourselves as women, and which exude strength, pride in being a woman, and the will to overcome any difficulties.

Congratulations to you all.

Waiting – Light by SusannaRouto

 

On the Cusp of Womanhood by Beautifuldreamer
On the cusp of womanhood a girl’s rounded cheeks become more angular
as the innocent chin of childhood defines itself into a force to be reckoned with.
Emerging hips, carved exquisitely out of a wealth of peaceful slumbers,
or cruelly hacked from brutal use,
complement the swell of newly formed breasts, risen mysteriously overnight
like mounds of bread dough covered in chaste cotton cloths.  READ ON…

 

Last resort of an open mind. by Zeb Shaffer

 

Gratitude For Nothing by H.M.Bascom
