SparkWeavings She is the Spark Weaver A Wise Womon re-born weaving new life where once thread bare & worn now She sits patiently singing as She Weaves these Sparks of re-Birth for this tapestry of strong Womyn once covered Her Earth deep in your memory you hear Her whispering among trees singing to glowing embers on the night’s breeze She's watching & waiting so wherever you may roam Her voice can Welcome & Weave you all the way home © 2006 Jennie SparkWeaver revised © 2011 Jennie SparkWeaver

GrandMother’s Voice for many years You lay dormant hidden deep within us calling out our names tortured more by our deafness than You ever were by their flames © 2006 Jennie SparkWeaver
Preconceived Notions at first glance I would never have guessed that your touch could be so gentle and yet like so many nights before we lay in each other’s arms your tender kiss fell unexpectedly to my lips and my eyes opened to a passion I had not known before playfully you invited me to love you your excitement danced on my tongue and into my heart now by mornings light still wet with dew the memory of your sweet softness lingers on my every breath © 2006 Jennie SparkWeaver
Rain come sing come dance come cleansing rains come flowing down dissolve these chains too long have our tongues been tied not a moment longer will we timidly hide You’ll see us prancing sky clad in a field the Labrys’ power we shall once again wield bathed in Moonlight here we stand fulfilling our rites throughout the land © 2006 Jennie SparkWeaver
Birth Sometimes... I just say words together... And listen... for the silent cry of images being born © 2006 Jennie SparkWeaver
