“Being a Woman” Collection by Michele Lee Sefton

“Being a Woman” books by Michele Lee Sefton

This summer, I kept Michele Lee Sefton’s poetry series “Being a Woman” close. I didn’t want them to end!

There’s this small collection of papers I have from my childhood vacations to a lake in Massachusetts. Stories, plots, drawings…they’re sacred to me and represent my inner child at her most free. Reading these poetry books this summer felt like flipping through those old papers. Special, sacred, warm.

Michele is an incredibly talented writer—the kind that can give glimpses of a larger story with just a few words. Her poems made me laugh, and ponder, and cry, and feel. Many shared empowering messages I wish I could have read as a young female teenager, while others sparked a thoughtfulness about my future. And then, the rest left me feeling comfortable. You know? When the day drags by and there’s a bit too much on your shoulders, though everything is technically fine and you just need a little something to feel lighter? Someone who can relate to what you’re going through. Well, these books were my pick-me-up to revive my spirit and help me feel seen. ♡
