A symbol of where,
I stand today.
what my love sees in me, what I see in myself.
A collection of the ornaments that were adorned,
passed down by the women,
who’s genes take new form.
Influences carried forward,
reconfigure shapes, unexpected,
defying old, defining new,
Between the women that stood before,
the woman, I am standing as.
On solid ground, shaping my past,
for the world, to see.
Slipping the secret stone,
just for me.
