‘She Stands in Beauty’ art by Isadora
Michel Pépé – La Rose Magnifique – Elixir d’Amour
This video is part of an album which has a magnificent quest, an elixir of life,
which invites us in the heart of love.
Michel Pepe offers us here a resplendent piece,
in the perfumed notes or romanticism and sweetness.
A music which caresses the soul and awakens a feeling of infinite LOVE ….
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or Fall down on their knees. Then they swarm around me, A hive of honey bees. I say, It’s the fire in my eyes, And the flash of my teeth, The swing in my waist, And the joy in my feet. I’m a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That’s me.
Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can’t see.
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
’Cause I’m a woman

All women phenomenally beautiful and radiant. Inner beauty and grace priceless, timeless and forever beautiful. Posivity and goodness perfect ways to nurture not just ourselves but everyone around us. Thanks.

Being a woman … I have to agree. 😃
There is so much beauty about a woman both inside and out.
We are nurturing beings who create wonderful things in our lives
if we have faith in ourselves. Thanks for you insightful comment, IT.
It’s always a pleasure to see you visiting here. 😊

Beauty of nature has a higher vibration (including the beauty within ourselves and others), and I believe beauty around us elevates hope within us!
July 12, 2014 at 2:21 pm
I couldn’t agree with you more, Becca. I believe it’s the reason people seek nature.
Thank you for hosting Nurturing Thursday. It’s a pleasure for me to be surrounded
by the many seekers of nurturing among us.
Namaste … ❤
