Woman is an Acrylic Painting


She rhymes with ‘he’ ‘tree’ and ‘me’
She is real and she is raw
She is beauty at the core
She is courtesan, amazon, madonna and mother
She is throughout history considered ‘other’
She hurts but her heart stays open
She is instinct – she is knowledge
She nurtures by heart
She is sensitive
She is sensual and she is smart
She is loving from the start
She is soft – she is strong
She knows but still she powers on
She comes in all shapes, sizes and colours
She is delicate, fragile and playful
She loves her inner child
She mothers her children
She is sexual and she is courageous
She is red, pink and blue
She is resiliant
She breaks and puts herself back together
She is apple pear or hour glass
She has curves and she is deep
She has lips nose eyes
She has legs, breasts and more
She likes a room of her own
She craves to connect…be valued and seen
She has a voice and likes to speak
She is layered and she is mystery
She likes to take time to know you
She is more then what you see
She is grace under pressure
She loves to sing, dance, cry and be free
She loves to love and be loved in return
She is passionate and she likes to dance
She is at her essence about romance
She moves her heart in amazing ways
She is yin, the night and silver
She is moon
She is the red rose…pink heart…the green earth
She possesses an inner glow
She is a queen, goddess and princess
She is a wise old lady
She is a girl
She is woman.

By John Lennon

(For the other half of the sky)

Woman I can hardly express
My mixed emotions at my thoughtlessness
After all I’m forever in your debt
And woman I will try to express
My inner feelings and thankfulness
For showing me the meaning of success

Ooh, well, well
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Ooh, well, well
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

Woman I know you understand
The little child inside of the man
Please remember my life is in your hands
And woman hold me close to your heart
However distant don’t keep us apart
After all it is written in the stars

Woman please let me explain
I never meant to cause you sorrow or pain
So let me tell you again and again and again

I love you, yeah, yeah
Now and forever
I love you, yeah, yeah
Now and forever
I love you, yeah, yeah
Now and forever

Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.
