The witching hour
Stirred from slumber
Like the strike of a match
Flickering on timber
Scrambling to find
Against the flame
Lull, and become
Having read the book “A woman’s Worth” years ago, I learned it was common for women to be jarred awake around four in the morning. After some discussion with friends I found they would also jolt awake in middle of the night for no apparent reason. Now my daughter finds herself doing the same.
In past years it was known as a time for women to gather privately. What power there is when women gather to share ideas, and solve problems! It was such a threat, that in days of old, women were burned at the stake!
I can’t say I haven’t come up against a few men that found my power intimidating, and would rally at the idea of seeing me burned at the stake. I have also happened upon phenomenal men who hold woman with power and tenacity in the highest esteem.
All my life some of my most creative times were in the dead of night. Where the idea’s come flooding through, only to be forgotten the next morning!
I have learned to bounce up and get the ideas down immediately, or lose them forever!
