This girl, she is...

self-portrait of a tired, emotional girl

A poem note I wrote using a word list I created on the first day of the

Midwest Inner Excavation retreat

 based on the prompt,

This girl, she is

.

This girl, she is carefree yet tailored and refined.

Illuminated with beauty.

All aglow with a sparkling sweep of confidence.

She is celebrating that which is emerging, transforming.

Ripe with possibility.

Embracing a cherished blossom.

In a cozy safe space.

Framed by a picture window into her soul.
