Standing Strong

Origami Womens shoes


Of all women

In the recent past times

Whose feet tread upon injustice

An stood

Some silent, but unwavering

Strong upon their beliefs

Of equal rights

For all

Butterfly Cinquain


In tribute to those women of the #sufferage movement. 1840-1920

a rock

What stories you hold?

What have you

Seen and heard,

Sitting there observing life?

A silent listener?

To this day the volcano sits quietly, but many sources say it will erupt again soon.
