she rocks

lovely Audra, photo by Elizabeth Keating

she's come undone
in a good way

she's letting loose
her wild, creative

she's listening to her
inner child

today it told her to paint her
a rainbow of colors

so she did

she's learning that being open
means being vulnerable

so she ~
feels more
and receives more


she's discovering more
parts of her that were put aside
for much too long

she knows she's not

she has a sisterhood

extending hugs and hands
from a distance

oh, she likes this new

this Whole Woman

and so do i

she rocks.

i always fall in love with poems
that have the word "she" in them,
i wonder if thats odd?

i wonder if you'll find this comment...over a year after the original post...
i just ran accross your photos on flickr and was so happy to see your name :-)
much time has gone since my last post, many changes made. i meant to keep a running journal, but couldn't find the time..so little time - i had to use it wisely! i have worn a pendant created by sarah smith for me which reads "persevere" religiously, reminding myeself to fight on.
i learned to weld (still learning) so that i could create the sculptures in my head. I began pursuing my art with a passion, thanks to you inspiring girls, and thanks to your loving words.
thank you again, for sharing your spirit wih us!
i hope to be even further on my way soooon.... audra
