Our first MADE to Write Workshop was magical! A wellness workshop for healing, deepening our writing techniques, connecting and lots of unpacking.
Be sure to make it to our next workshop. Thank you to everyone who MADE it.
We are highlighting attorney, poet, blogger & author, ~ F. Renee Hamilton~ for her writing prose during our MADE to Write Workshop #SheisMADE

Writing Prompt: The Ache for home lives in all of us. The Safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned – Maya Angelou, All God’s Children Need Traveling Shoes
Layers upon layers of softness, as I nestle myself in her bed.
I find myself as comforted, as I am overwhelmed.
Release resides within these walls.
I can feel joy all around.
I look up and gaze upon her eyes,
Captured in picturesque perfection.
Light brown and wise.
Her photograph challenges my desire to be,
To stand tall
And hold my head high.
Her place should be in the kitchen,
With cinnamon and flour to rise.
She yearned to feed me,
But in her place of rest,
I am full.
I roll myself tighter in the finest of silks and lace.
My grandmothers’ bed will always be my safe place.
