IMAGE & POEM (MARCH 2009)

About Awakening

Marie-France's beautiful image, Secret de Femme, inspired this reflective poem. I have personified the moon in her female stance and role as the observer of seasonal change. With the coming of Spring, there is a shattering of stillness, boredom and image. The swans are harbingers of forthcoming grace, especially concerning the change in landscape and temperament.The ice of winter breaks on the water like a mirror. Something stirs within the earth, womanhood and time. An awakening that signifies passage and the revelation of a woman's secret ----her resilience..
