With You

With You

written by: Maryanne Frederick



With you,
My soul pirouettes
Spiraling diaphanous folds of
Organza trailing behind.

With you,
My spirit spreads its joy
In wavy watercolors
Leaving a shallow breath
Of ecstasy.

With you–
Only with you.


I was inspired by the painting, L’Etoile, by Edgar Degas.

Maryanne Frederick writes about the challenges women face as they learn to love first themselves and then finally that someone special. It's a journey worth taking.

Best day ever? Finding a comfortable boulder near a forest stream where she can write to her heart’s content. Of course, there would also be a hammock nearby, maybe a canoe... and Diet Pepsi. Must have Diet Pepsi.

Maryanne earned her bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois and her master's degree from Arizona State University.
