Women’s March

To my sisters in the streets

(and to my brothers and sibling that march with them):

May your voices rise like a clarion call

Strong and clear, rallying the world to our defense

May your words pierce the heart with truth

As sharp as Eros’ arrow and as sure

May your footsteps shake the foundations

Cracking the world that needs to be destroyed,

Revealing the world that must come into being

Like Kali’s wild dance: an end and a beginning

May the warmth of companionship,

born amidst the fire

Keep you safe

Goddess bless you all

Inspiration & Poetry

To Spring

O, first fledgling flower

Pushing up through the softened dirt

Rains droop your head

I watch

your softness bending to the earth

your bright-faced beauty shining in the glimmer of raindrops

What is this beauty that reaches up

even as it lies low?

What do you teach,

o simplicity, on this dim morning?

I watch

and I wonder.
