We gather together under late summer evenings
Greeting each other with our hearts, a touch, a smile
How grateful I am for this circle of women
For the circle that holds, connects and heals us.
We come together knowing there will be
laughter, tears and holy silence
We come knowing that every part of us is welcome
and that we will be held with tender care.
We gather together to tell of ourselves,
to share the questions that are arising in our souls
To ask without words if we are the same
or if our experiences are "normal"
and then to feel the answer...indeed...we are with you
We come knowing we will be seen and deeply valued
Love and honor unspoken but deeply felt
We come knowing that this gathering of women
gives voice to those parts of ourselves
that have been waiting to speak...
and in the speaking... the circle is complete
And as the circle comes to completion
I gather myself up
feeling full, content and oh so grateful
Grateful for this gathering of women
I appreciate your support; thanks for reading and commenting!
