Honor by Luci Adams




I have some wonderful friends in my life.

Strong women.

Women on the cutting edge.

Women on the forefront.


Teachers of music, authors, gardeners,

Readers, healers, housewives, mothers,

Maidens, crones, poets.


Women in pain, in joy.


Women still in physical bodies, some not.

Courageous women, risk takers,

Seekers, knowers,

Creative, warm wonderful.

Humorous, giving, supportive.


Women who have touched my life in some way…

Some in small yet significant ways —

Some with greater impact …
