Two beautiful poems from “A Poet’s Journey :Sunlight and Shadows” by Marta Moran Bishop

The Owl Branch Book Promotions


Friendship based on shadows
Promises never kept
Lines crossed too often
With words misunderstood

Without substance or truth

Honor, kindness is lost
So, mired in pretense
Arise my true sister
Throw off your raiments of fear
Take my hand in yours

Let light bind us together
Our words build each other
No tears to squash our dreams
No anger to close our hearts.
Arm in arm together
Women can change the world
Grow, let go of our past
Fearless, strong and loving
Bright spirit show the way.
