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

Redemption!
(after leaving the batterer)

I will repress nothing!

I am redefining my perimeter
relinquishing my past
reawakening my feelings
re-experiencing my anger
recalling my Voice

I am reasserting my abilities
reestablishing my Strength
responding to my needs
rearranging my destiny
reaffirming my choices

I am re-placing my boundaries
re-zoning my horizons
reentering my existence
realizing my reality
re-centering my energy

I am re-birthing my Creativity
re-determining my Power
releasing my Spirit
recollecting my Wisdom
redesigning my Spirituality

I am reforming my inner peace
replenishing my desire
respecting my emotions
rejoicing in my beauty
revealing my Love

I am reclaiming my Self!

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

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

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

Birth

Sometimes... 
I just say words together... 
And listen... 
for the silent cry 
of images being born
