International Women’s Day
First it is the stretching
You feel it in your bones
Breath after breath
you make room for life
You are more than a conduit —
you are celestial alchemy,
written and designed for this moment.
until you are the ocean.
May you feel your depth and majesty
You carry life inside of you
burning and shifting and groaning
until the waves come
and push you to the limit.
May your new shape hold no boundaries
You are a creator — a breath of the divine
You close your eyes, moons against space,
you write entire universes into existence.
(don’t forget to breathe)
Waves crash over you
and around you
and inside of you
and life pulses through every vein
You are woman.
People will stop and throw secrets into your embrace.
You are magic.
May you walk in that promise today and every day.
