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.
