I love common mouse ear, and so much so it embodies beauty a lot of us take for granted.
We are woman, and we are beautiful.
Yesterday, my heart marched in the streets of New York, Lerwick, Bergen, Edinburgh, Oslo, Lisbon, Paris, Philadelphia – wherever women marched along with those who love, treasure, respect them. And they were joined by a whole spirit, the one that says and reminds all that America and the free world make one.
To celebrate that spirit, fire that shines deep inside us, I will celebrate our womanhood, the way we love, look at the world and smile; and hashtag it in the title of every post.
Many women have touched my heart throughout my life journey. Let them be now known to the world. Some so famous, others, unknown.
I will begin with Victoria, the one who smiled and touched my heart – a station nurse working for USAID, based in NYC, NY, USA. Tremendously spirited, so aware of the ills from far less privileged regions from our world, and investing herself in her duties and people in her care – she, humble, unknown American ambassador of the world’s bastion of freedom and democracy . I am in awe of her beauty inside-out.
I am so proud of you, Peerie Mouse 🙂
For you, my tiger, in my own words, as a poet and a woman, and wish you well on your forthcoming tour, from my island to your island.
I already chiselled your name on
every train you take and
on every door yet to
open, on every
footbridge and rope that
suspends us in between now and
the river that divides
where I wonder how Venus shines; and
imagine the big apple,
compressed sand grains…
flower of chaos,
that little big bang from your heart.
