To celebrate International Women’s Day 2013, our women have been busy writing poetry and creating artwork. We encouraged our women at our Evening Drop in and WINGS group to think about a word that would carry them through 2013, that would sum up what they would want for themselves for the year ahead, or a word that would inspire them.
The words hope, change, children, balance, strength and achieve were amongst words chosen and used by our WINGS group in a creative writing and art workshop. The results?
I saw woman like a rock in the stream
I saw resilience like the sunset turning round
I saw change with feathers of light
I saw hope like a jet through the sky
I saw strength, the comfort of home
I saw chocolate. The struggle was over
I saw balance fighting to be free
I saw life, electric fireworks in my brain
I saw inspiration reach for the stars
I saw achievement, a warm glowing future
I saw children safe from stormy weather
I saw Kairos women working together
(a work in progress which when finished will adorn the walls of our Evening Drop In)
