Sigils in the Sand - The Eternal Awakening

Postby Christine » Sun Aug 05, 2018 10:06 am

I am posting this here in deep gratitude for the unwound hearts that beat with a fierce love. I have been so blessed to be so consistently drawn to many friends, who without ever a word ever over thousands of miles of distance are deep within the Mother's emanating field of love.

Imagine the desert
mothers, with hair tangled
tighter than their theology
and breasts that flowed milk
and mystic wisdom. they
knew how to draw the singing
sigils in the sand, how to dig
rough and bitten fingers
into desiccated dirt for water
to wet the lips of their young.

women of hips and heft, who
learned how to burn
beneath the wild and searing
sun, who made loud love
against the star-flecked threat
of night, who knew that strength
is not always a matter of muscle.

imagine your ancestresses,
the prophetesses of the arid
lands, before these starched
traditions and pews too hard
to pray from, who bled true
ritual and birthed their own fierce
souls at creation's crowning.

~ Beth Morey, Night Cycles: Poetry for a Dark Night of the Soul
The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
