monday morning.

monday morning.
a perfect opportunity to remind yourself
of why it's going to be a fabulous week,
a la dr. maya angelou:

. . .
i say,
it's in the reach of my arms,
the span of my hips,
the stride of my step,
the curl of my lips.
. . .
i say,
it's in the fire in my eyes,
and the flash of my teeth,
the swing in my waist,
and the joy in my feet.
. . .
i say,
it's in the arch of my back,
the sun of my smile,
the ride of my breasts,
the grace of my style.
. . .
now you understand
just why my head's not bowed.
i don't shout or jump about
or have to talk real loud.
when you see me passing
it ought to make you proud.
i say,
it's in the click of my heels,
the bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
the need of my care,
'cause i'm a woman
phenomenal woman,
that's me.

that's you, dear reader.
phenomenal you.

wishing you the phenomenal week you deserve.
