Perimenopause: A Tribute

img_0490

At a key point in a woman’s evolution
she must journey through a fiery passageway
which burns up her biological fertility
singes off false layers of civility
ignites her emotions
and heightens her priorities towards the sensual
Waves of heat radiate from her body
signaling that she is a powerful force
Creativity surges
fears are scorched
wisdom is sharpened
She is propelled to say what needs to be said
to do what needs to be done
Silver steadily advances and brightens
And near the consummation of this intensive transformation
the woman begins to suspect
that she herself
has become the fire
