Day 16 NaPoWriMo. Four days ago we talked about personal effects of political change in Pretty Horse. Today, it is an eco-business affected by the political unrest in Nicaragua – Finca Esperanza Verde. Run by a dedicated woman, Vivianne, FEV has changed its focus from Eco lodge to selling their coffee beans and eco-farming.
I had the pleasure of visiting FEV on a women’s retreat. I slept in a cottage in the cloud forest waking to howler monkeys, Yoga, fresh picked bananas, and the smell of coffee grown steps away. Enjoy the poem!
There is a wild woman
inside every domesticated gentlewoman.
Humming with the hummingbirds,
dipping naked in a forest waterfall,
dancing round the midnight bonfire,
journaling her dreams,
making big plans,
opening her business.
A jungle woman takes risks
for love, adventure, art,
and her brand of success.
A jungle woman looks deep inside
pulls out her essence
A jungle woman lives!
