If you have taken this petal for my soul
Crushing it between your fingers to stain your lips
Know that she’d long ago moved on
Down the length of its stem into the earth

If you think you can grasp me, think again
My life is a wilful flow
Broken tap, water rushing from the mains
Your barriers poor


  1. And thus a Goddess speaks. Vera, the voice of all womanhood at its very best, most whole self. ❤️

      1. 😄❤️ It’s so true!!! There are times in my life I wish I’d had the strength, poise and wherewithal to even think those words…..much less pen them, say them…proclaim them to the world!!! This stunned me and Your humility adds even more beauty. Sending huge hugs and Many Thanks!!! 🙂 You give voice to something here that everyone can tuck into their hearts and take away…..I hope You have a fantabulous day!!! 🤗🦋☀️
