Congratulations on being that woman…you…

It is beautiful to try to describe the beauty of this life through words. It’s beautiful how sometimes we can write poems about the people we love, or the acts of tenderness that give us hope, or even about the breathtaking sight of a warm sunset after a gloomy day.

Sometimes, however, words cannot serve that purpose. Words, with the power they have and the impact they can create, turn into useless tools of expression. In that case, beauty is captured differently…

You glimpse the glittery drops of sweat on that working woman’s forehead and you smile. The beauty of that sight just hits you: It’s wonderful how she could be so feminine yet so powerful…

Powerful, yet tender...
Powerful, yet tender…

And then you notice another sight; a sight of a woman, painting. Peacefully, she’s painting. She handles the brush so assertively that the tenderness of the colored “touch” is almost unbelievable– unexpected. Yet, you can’t help but notice how strong yet sensational her performing soul is.

Strong yet sensational...
Strong yet sensational…

And then you keep going, and you keep drifting with your thoughts. You keep imagining, and you keep trying to capture the beauty of these sights. And you end up catching sight of the multi-tasking mother, running around behind her three kids after a whole working day; the political leader who defies the questioning looks and stands still in front of the belittling acts of her surroundings; the lonely poor mother who tries to support her child through his learning journey; And the woman who brings another soul to life…These are all beautiful sights– beautiful beyond words…and their meanings…

When she defies the looks...
When she defies the looks…                                  
And says no to the idea of defeat...
And says no to the idea of defeat…
When she's a warm soul despite everything...
When she’s a warm soul despite everything…
And when she gives life to another soul...It's beautiful...
And when she gives life to another soul…It’s beautiful…
