Women's Retreat

And so it is
good and right
to laugh and sing
in the dark

Travel away
and come back stronger
living how we were
meant to live

In friendship
In community

To walk our path
with other women
never alone

To journey at night
arm in arm
and come upon
all our poems
Set in circles
lit by candles

To place a prayer shawl
knit in grace
placed by grace
We are the threads
gathered by holy hands
