My Goddess Awakes
The goddess within me
Awakes from her slumber
This soft day near summer’s end.
Tall trees reach out branches
As if stretching from a long sleep.
Shining pine needles extend like fingers
In bouncing points.
Grass clothes bosomed hills with golden color.
The sun, mellowing its blaze,
Still musters sultry afternoons,
Though cool mornings rouse us with shivers.
An alluring river moves through me,
As my Goddess stirs an awareness
Of the feminine pulse of life.
Creative ideas caress me, seduce words
To slip on bowed colors to earth,
For a wedding of body and soul.
I throw open the windows,
Dust off my doormat,
And gather a golden bouquet

Star Kissed Shadows, Divining Poetry: Climb into this book like one would a warm bath for comfort, sensual pleasure, buoyant lightheartedness, and a lasting reminder to enjoy the moment. Open the book at random for insights. If you are ready to deepen your love of life and language, this book is a must.
“Sher's words are those of a woman who loves life, a woman who in her wisdom years knows how to fully embrace and express her playfulness, sensuality, and no-holds-barred honesty, acute observation, and love without judgment. I often pick up Star Kissed Shadows and with eyes shut and intuition open, turn to a page that always speaks to the moment, to the question of my heart. This is a book to carry around with you, to leave by your bed, or keep on your desk. Her poems remind us that we can have a life fully lived.” Kay Hogan, Seminar Leader, Caregiver
