thoughts from my mind to yours


Candy-Cane Pajamas

She ruled
wearing her mistletoe crown
and candy-cane pajamas
having a cup of coffee…
Keeping all the balls up in the air
and kicking those that fell.

Take a moment – Happy International Women’s Day

To all women who can…


Take a moment,
to fly with your heart
above the distant oceans
or to the quiet corner of the room
where you can curl up with a book and unwind
take a moment to follow your muse across the skies,
take a moment, for you…
for there are still some who can’t. 


Happy International Women’s Day! Take a moment for yourself today and always!

Flying – Belated Happy International Women’s Day!

Looked down for the use of her pronoun

“We” instead of “I”

Seen as a  weaker leader for her compassion

but a stronger bond she tied

Marching to the tune of her heart

beyond the judgemental eyes

she flew high

in the clear blue skies

Happy Women’s Day – ‘She is a girl’

Don’t clip her wings,

for she wants to fly,

Higher, than the reach of your eyes,



Don’t break her courage,

for she dares to dream,

awake from a past full of screams,



Don’t put her beneath your notice,

for she is a woman,

a mother , a sister, a daughter, who insists,

on being heard,



For as history has shown,

and future will see,

she is beyond grasp,

she is free…


She will learn what there is to learn,

and she will fly in the clear blue skies,

She will rise after each fall,

and she will conquer all that lies,

in her path…


She will not stay under your oppression,

but please do not torture her with your brutality,

she is stronger than you will ever know,

but set her free, in the name of humanity,

for she is a girl, and she can do everything,

that can possibly be.
