Hi, I am one of the girls in the Creative Awakenings Facilitator and Mentorship program.  It has been soooo fantastic and all of the ladies are amazing.  That includes Sheri of course, our fearless leader.

I facilitated this exercise in our group by having each person write a word or phrase that came to mind about all the other girls.  We shared that and then we were all to take those words or phrases and use all of them in a poem and of course adding our own and then we were to embellish the poem with some journal work.

This was a lot of fun and inspirational and I wanted to share my poem and journal work with you.

“ Shadow and Light “

As I walked in my shadow,

my shadow merged with the light

and I went within,

and there,

to find my soul beauty & delight


It was the deep living

and observations so bright

I, as

Compass-mate of others

in the dark of their night


I found it to be,

lovely inside and out

and felt the call of the void,

to be resilient… & stout

of wisdom,

well earned and devout


Carry on my dear one,

for now is the time

Carry on my dear one,

to shine your hearts ryme
