Crones don’t whine, for we have spent a lifetime becoming aware.
I am delighted this week to respond to a new challenge, Shafali’s Creativity Carnival. Each week she draws a cue-art to respond to, in whatever creative way we wish. This is what she drew this week for inspiration.
Here is my response…
Sprouting, blossoming, sweetening
Metamorphosis and misery, tempered with laughter and whimsy
Deepening, opening, becoming
I want to thank Shafali and the writers who answer her challenge for stretching my creative expression. I think this is the third poem I’ve ever written in my life! My cat has more poetry to her name than I do (Buffy’s Haiku). I also want to thank Jean Shinoda Bolen whose books, Crones Don’t Whine and Goddesses in Older Women have helped me as I trepidatiously enter this newest phase of my life.
As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day.
Would you like to share a random delight (the sky’s the limit, after all I wrote about crones)? You can use the linky below or simply put a link to your post in a comment. This party lasts all week, and is about sharing special moments with each other whatever form they take (more info here).
You can link from Instagram, Tumblr, Facebook, a blog … (as long as it’s your work). Don’t forget to add a link (pingback) to this post so others know where to join in.
