JOURNEY by Fateme Banishoeib

‘Journey’ is the opening poem of a collection of poetry and photos…

This collection is called Tea of Tibet, and collects the desire to explore and discover what makes us all human. Traveling to Tibet has been a dream coming reality for me.:Traveling far enough to meet myself.

Anthony Bourdain said that travel isn’t always pretty. It is not, nor is it comfortable, and it leaves marks in the memory and heart. As children, we are told that dreams help us to live better. As women, we learn dreams make our spirits restless. The dream is to leave something good behind.

During my travels, I used my eyes to see beyond the dreams; creating an extension of the heart using my pen and my camera. The magic is making up the journey as we go! Remembering who we are, and not what we are told to be in order to fit in.

This poem is dedicated to women who dream, to those who are forever seeking. May you also find yourself upon your journey!

Separating the seeds from the dirt 


Making the difference 


Self-determining our intrinsic nature 

Without bending to “Sort of”

What do I crave?

What do I desire?

For what do I yearn?

The checkpoints to ourselves 

Holding to the inner energy of no cheating 

The journey to me

The trip to forget who I became

and remember who I am 



Under the roof of the world

A vacation from what I am not

That leaves only one me

The one thirsty for illuminate water pouring from the spring

MY HEART SEEPS by Edith Lazenby

Courage is not only facing fear, but also looking past fear, to see what lies it tells and truths it saves...
Sometimes I sit at a computer in trepidation. The house trembles and I wonder what I will find. 
Truth is not a fact or a feeling. It may rest on love’s heart and walk with integrity. It may stand beyond humanity in ways we can only imagine. Truth can be solid as earth and fickle as wind. But a wind can know stillness and the earth can crack wide open.
Tonight I found a stillness in a crack and managed to balance there...

My Heart Seeps
by Edith Lazenby
I cannot hold on And I cannot let go. I walk a path I don’t know. I feel moonlight But cannot see Its orb midst The cloudy cold. My hands tremble. My eyes tear. My toes wriggle To grasp earth. I want to stand Tall in the light Yet fear shadows all. Inside I crumble Under the weight I cannot shoulder.

FOR THE SISTERS by Tammy T. Stone

These days, I’m finding it difficult – along with many, many others - not to feel disheartened...
I'm disheartened by the feeling that chaos has descended upon us, at the negativity and fear, the anger and reactivity, the violent spirit of animosity characterizing the times. It’s hard not to give in to the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, even as we cling to the strong conviction that it is our positivity and our love that will prevail.
Every crevice of my heart goes out to the suffering (and we are all suffering when one of us suffers), and my heart aches for the untold numbers of women around the world who are immediately and devastatingly affected by recent decisions to cut funding to organizations vital to their health and wellbeing, a movement that horrifyingly undermines women’s sovereignty over their own bodies. Words do not do the feeling justice.
It feels to me that the earth itself is overturning, that our fragile grasp of what is right and true, of our incredibl…

IMAGINE A WOMAN by Patricia Lynn Reilly

This poem invites you to look upon yourself with loving kindness…
Gazing at your own true reflection, you will discover that everything you have longed for “out there” is already within you! I invite you to love your creativity fiercely. Faithfully plant seeds, allowing under-the-ground dormant seasons, nurturing your creative garden with love and gratitude. In the fullness of time, the green growing things thrust forth from the ground. It's a faithful, trustworthy process. AND it takes time and patience.  Blessed is the fruit of your creative womb! I invite you to trust your vision of the world and express it. With wonder and delight, paint a picture, create a dance, write a book, and make up a song. To give expression to your creative impulses is as natural as your breathing. Create in your own language, imagery, and movement. Follow no script. Do not be limited by the customary way things have been expressed. Your creative intuition is original. Gather all of life into your inner c…
