A circle of colorful women …
Bodies altered,
Fears exposed,
Laughing anyway.

Inspiration image

Stories shared,
Grief dissolved,
Prayers lifted,
Hope multiplied.
Magic circle …
None alone.

Arms opened,
Hearts expanded …
A circle of friends,
A circle of healing,
A mile-wide miracle of survivorship …
A circle of colorful women.
