You remind me of all that is possible

Just seeing you walk so strong

Just seeing your deep lines of wisdom

As you tell us the stories of all you have weathered

For women and girls

You are

Walking, 

Sitting, 

Laughing by the fire,

Calling down the moon,

Making new things happen,

Powerful, loud mouthed women

And here, with you 

I remember more clearly,

I know more powerfully,

I celebrate so deeply

That I have seen you,

And heard about your life,

And know what you are doing,

And am with you on this global web

That we continue to weave together 

As we continue to find each other

 

I have seen you and know

That we are here at the same time on this earth

Each of us knowing we were born for this

Making change happen

Seriously

Intentionally

In numbers we had only imagined

Making room for women’s voices

Freeing women into a world 

Rewoven from our deepest knowledge of what is possible

Knowing that this is for every one of us

Stepping forward into leadership 

Where our voices can speak from our hearts

Silenced for so long

Now known 

In the stories we tell each other.

Dear Edith,
Yes, from that dream that Jensine brought to life, here we are now together, new stories pouring in every day, relationships forming, all of us realizing our dreams.
Thanks for your words, dear sister.

Hello, dear Tam,

Wow, another powerful post from you. This is so beautiful. What a tribute to all women! Is this a post intended to the Call for Stories #IStandWithHer? It would be nice if you can submit this there, too, in solidarity of the 16 Days of Activism campaign.

Thank you for sharing this heartfelt poem with us. Have a great day!

Hi dear Karen,
Thank you for the solid support, I feel it deeply. Yes I do plan to write for #IStandWithHer. So important that we raise our voices together for the 16 Days of Activism. This one I began while camping in the woods last summer with like-hearted women, and felt that same gratitude yesterday having the chance to Zoom with so many powerful and busy sisters.

Our voices silenced for so long - now known.

I love this phrase and your poetry, Tam. Thank you for sharing and for showing up for women today and every day.

Dear Corine,
Thank you for the solid support here and in so many ways. I strongly believe that this is what I am to do with my life. That it is taking so long shows what strong resistance there is, to change. But now we have World Pulse and we know we are everywhere, working together.

My dear sister, may this dawn of time bring you health, peace and much love. May your voice of affection have an echo in our hearts. May my voice, here in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro take my desire for happiness, prosperity and listening to every cell in your body. Be happy. Happy Birthday. Happy life!
