|MOTHER AWAKENS! She stirs, sending forth shoots and leaves! (Art by Hallelujah Truth)|
Below are inspirational words from Marian Spadone that I found in my calendar, We'Moon 2013, Gaia Rhythms for Womyn. Enjoy!
She stirs, sending forth shoots and leaves,
whispering sweet desires,
coaxing forth all who seek release
from the bonds of Winter's Night.
tiny in the still fathomless darkness.
Now like the bird in the eggshell,
we've swelled to fill the space.
Our world grows tight, cramped.
We feel anxious, our resources nearly gone.
Time to peck our way out
and claim the promise of Spring.
First, notice and name WHAT BINDS YOU.
Name the prisons
of fearsome circumstance, disillusionment, environmental crisis.
Notice what feels stifled, blocked, hopeless.
Then circle together to TURN IT AROUND!
Stir and flex your power. Stretch and moan,
rock and sing, and break free at the peak.
Emerge from the broken shell of winter.
Feel lightened, lifted, determined
to leave the old world in shards behind you.
Sparkling and sovereign,
stride into the GATEWAY,
between the pillars,
one light and one dark.
Unbound, blessed and surging,
retrieve the trust that comes with balance.
Thrive in the burgeoning light.
|THRIVE IN THE BURGEONING LIGHT! Break out of the boundaries that bound you! (Art by Hallelujah Truth)|

Thank you Marian Spandone for your beautiful poem and all the work you do around honoring "death."
