A Love Poem

Tamarack Verrall
Posted August 31, 2014 from Canada

Hello dear Community Listeners,

This is a poem for all of you, part of a longer piece that I posted today. It is my thank you for being able to be part of this and to feel all of you around me since joining World Pulse.

A Love Poem To You

Sisters

Far away, deep in my heartI call out your names in joyI carry your stories and how we have metThis is a new ecstasy.Now that this ancient dream is coming trueThis dream that we carriedBefore we were born - We are finally, Finally meeting each otherIn this lifetime.Now I have met youWhere you areWho you areI have read what you have to sayI have read from you what we can doAcross barriers of time and distanceIn which we have always knownThat each other was thereAnd now stories and photosOf your beautiful facesAnd the faces of all those girls and women That you are gathering in your loving armsYour voices carry across the oceansI call out your namesI hear you singing and dancing together"Until every woman is heard, Until every woman is heard"*And we sing back and drum and dance from hereThe same ancient danceWe are here to do thisAnd in this life timeWe are finally,FinallyMeeting each other.

With Love in Sisterhood,

Tamarack

Dear Tam,

How exquisite this poem is, from the first word through the last, and how glorious that line sung by the Power Women Group in Kenya! You seem to have captured everything that World Pulse stands for; the very essence of it and why Jensine began this amazing work. With Admiration and Gratitude, Sarah

Dear Sarah,

Thank you for your kind words. I am so, so very thankful to be part of World Pulse, and connecting with all of you. I learned about the Power Women Group through Hmagnussen. What a tremendous system this is!

With love,

Dear Kadidia,

Thank you for the beautiful thought. It is so hopeful to meet others who also dream. I am hopeful these days even beyond what I have dreamed of in the past. It continues to amaze me that we can now meet.

With love,

Tam

Dear Tam - I have to tell you that tears (tears of joy!) sprung to my eyes when I read those first four lines...and then continued as I finished your lovely poem. This truly is a gift you have shared with all women. And "I hear you singing and dancing together "Until every woman is heard, Until every woman is heard"*"...I hear them, too!!

In love and peace, Terry

Dear Terry,

I am so glad that these words resonated deeply within you. It is so amazing that we are now able to be in touch globally. It is because of this network that I can picture so clearly in my mind the Power Women Group in Kenya, and picture so many Sisters now, and know that we are all reaching out to meet each other and to form this powerful network. And now I hear you, too.

With Love in Sisterhood,

Tamarack

Hi Tam,

In many ways, your poem captures the essence of why I believe the world can be transformed through the type of connection and community being enabled by World Pulse.

This belief is what led me to establish the new entity, 'Wise Women Will Save the World'. I just shared the link to your poem on our Facebook Page: http://goo.gl/7ysn27

Regards,

Graeme.

Hello Graeme,

Thank you for being in touch, and for your reinforcing words. I am glad to know about the Wise Women website, and have already begun to read, enjoy and learn from it. The more we all find each other, the stronger we are, and the stronger the proof that we are not alone in believing that change is possible, and that many more than we have known, are here to create peace and freedom.

Linking arms,

Tamarack

You have captured in verse the beautiful, transformative feeling, the SPIRIT of how I have been changed, encouraged, and enriched by my experience with World Pulse and my connection with our sisters here. I've been rather absent the past few months due to a crushing work load, and this was the perfect way to touch base! I hope now that we can connect too, and that even though I've been distant, tending to the challenges of life for my family, doing my web development work and helping other women and artists establish an online presence and learn how to maneuver online, you will be here with beautiful and profound words to greet me when I'm back with time to contribute more of myself here once again.

Dear Hanasazi,

Thank you for your beautiful words. We all need to ebb and flow with the demands of life, and those of us who have found World Pulse can now know that in times that we must we rest, we remain strong through our connections with each other. Take good care of your self, and rest easy with thoughts of our amazing network.

With love,

Tamarack
