Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth.
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace in my style.
I’m a woman.
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
The palm of my hand,
The need for my care.
‘Cause I’m a woman.
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

The Unusual Suspects

The Unusual Suspects
Yes! Yes! Yes! I am hooked on digital collage and color. Hey, it’s better than a shopping addiction because I don’t have to spend anything but blissful, mindless time. Even better, it’s therapeutic. It’s quite a bargain, if you ask me.
If you are curious or have an interest in making your own creation, check out this post, and let your creativity roam wild.

“We are made or unmade by ourselves; in the armory of thought we forge the weapons we use to destroy ourselves. And we also fashion the tools we use to build for ourselves heavenly mansions of joy and strength and peace.” ~ “As You Think,” James Allen

A Haiku on Meditation

Rushing Waters

I sit in stillness.
Inside, chaos is master.
Looks are deceiving.
