Feminine

“One day a hummingbird flew in —

It fluttered against the window til I got it down where I could reach it with an open umbrella–

— When I had it in my hand it was so small I couldn’t believe I had it–but I could feel the intense life — so intense and so tiny —

…You were like the humming bird to me…

And I am rather inclined to feel that you and I know the best part of one another without spending much time together —

— It is not that I fear the knowing–

It is that I am at this moment willing to let you be what you are to me — it is beautiful and pure and very intensely alive.”

Georgia O’Keeffe

You know her when you see her – elegant yet free, refined but with a sensual airiness. You might find her carving a silky piece of marble in a light-filled studio, slowly revealing subtly curving details. Feminine is soft on the outside because she’s rooted in her inner strength.
