Reflecting Pools Of Woman
~*Marge Tindal*~

There is a place where woman goes
in quiet reflecting pools of her spirit
No one follows ...
for they cannot touch her there ...
It is a place of gentle retreat
where woman seeks nourishment for her soul~

It is the necessary place
The pooling of all that is right
or wrong in her life~

Looking in ......
gives her the fortitude to look outward
at the surround of her life
She sighs ... and takes a drink of it all~

When she returns ...
the circling of her love
gathers those who most need to sip
of the nectar of her quenching~

She will tend the needs of others ...
until once more she thirsts~

~*The pen of the poet never runs out of ink, as long as we breathe.*~

Thank you dear poetess~

Kethry~
Thank you .... thank you~
As I wrote to a friend who e-mailed me on this one ....

Sometimes I 'write' a poem ...
Sometimes I 'am' the poem~


This one was upclose and personal ...
and yet universally touching all sisters of the circle~

When you sent this to me, I couldn't see the picture. You know the game we play with pictures. It matches the words perfectly.  I shared this with all the women in my address book! It is so beyond special. Hugs, Marti

You write of a place which only a woman
would know of and understand...  I do
understand this need and I feel you have that
place you write so beautifully of...

Margie girl darling sister of my heart Oh my word this is utterly utterly wonderful it flows fluidly over my mind like a clear stream of liquid wonder. Mmmmmm you darling heart are a marvellous writer of truth and light. YOU know I love this, since you never inscribe anything that I donít utterly love.

This again is utterly utterly wonderful, again the perfect penning of my favourite caller of hearts sigh and soulís thought. Exquisite darling girl utterly utterly exquisite

Iíve printed this out, using the last of my ink, Emma was here earlier and seems to have done a huge printing job since I was down to the dregs. Anyway Iíve printed this out and placed it on the wall so that when Krissy and Emma are here again, in Krissyís case that should be tomorrow, they will see it in its glory. Absolutely wonderful writing darling Margie girl truly one of your best

  
Love and warm stuff
As always
Mushy


Breathe through the heat of our desire
Thy coolness and they balm
Let sense be dumb let flesh retire
Speak through the eathquake wind and fire
Oh

And it is when she loses sight of her place that she loses the strength to rise again... I know... I've misplaced mine before. *S*

This is so beautiful, Marge... it reflects the beauty of its author. *S*

And in the 'reflecting' ... I find the strength to tend ... not only to the needs of others ... but to my own needs as well~

All you sisters ... drink of the nectar ... refresh your spirit~
*Huglets*
~*Sister Me*~

~*When the heart grieves over what it has lost,
the spirit rejoices over what it has left.
