Woman, Like Water

Someone showed me a glass of water and asked,

“Is this glass half full or half empty?”

So I drank the water. No more problem.

Alexander Jodorowsky


A wet and happy photo session with the Goddess Katrina inspired this poem I dedicate to every woman:

Like water, she is buoyed by joy

tranquil in self knowing

flowing with the current of what is.

Often told she’s but a fragile raindrop

she knows she has the wisdom of the ocean.

Stronger than a raging wave, she gushes

 submerged passions and

creativity swelling from the depths of her soul.

She floats over adversity

Soaking in pain that wakes her to action.

No, no, no

her brave heart won’t sink into surrender.

Woman, like water and life itself,

seeps unstoppable through all creation.

Drink her up.

    Ahhhhhh……how refreshing!!! As the mercury rises, (104 right now) just looking at photos like these makes me feel cooler. Pre-dunk hair…lol, looks great after the dunk. So much for the make-up too. The goddess is beautiful! Love the poem, great choice Sharky!
