Although the name of this blog might give the impression it will be filled with positive and calming reading the reader may find this is not always the case. I make no apologies for this.

I believe experiencing the whole range of emotions, both those considered negative and those considered to be positive are a big part in what makes us human.
Acknowledging and expressing those feelings in an appropriate way makes us healthy humans.
You will find the gamut of emotions expressed in my works on this blog. I hope they encourage the reader to acknowledge their own feelings both positive and negative.

The little girl within

 Todays offering is something a little different. I hope you enjoy it.
I think most women can relate to the little girl that resides within us all. Occasionally she pops up to the surface, sometimes when least expected. I'm a great believer in the idea of an inner child. The little girl within touches on that concept.
wishing you peace and healing

The little girl within

Inside the woman a little girl resides
The little girl within takes delight in simple things
Dandelion clock's, butterfly wings
Winter's orchard bare
Without, the woman moves as women do
Hips swaying to and fro
The little girl throws cartwheels
and squeals with glee
The woman pouts glossy kisses at the mirror in the hall
The little girl copies exuberantly adding pearls and precious jewels
Tottering in heels too high she giggles and leaves lipstick marks behind
The woman pauses now and then, the briefest smile upon her lips
As if she hears a childish whisper
Calling from afar
The little girl retreats again falling gently into sleep
Watch and listen carefully
and occasionally you will see
The little girl within the woman
that is me!
