Women (appreciations for the Leo full moon)I love the way we honour each other
Holding each other in our grief
Loving and celebrating each other
in our joy
Respecting and accepting our many faces of womanhood
Whatever the state of our hair
When we woke up, upside down in the bed
Wet from sex or crying
It of course depends on the day
I love that I can reach you across oceans
Without needing to pick up the phone
In this I realise I know you
Faithfully, soulfully, directly
Most beloved in the web of travellers
Dancing on the wire.
I love that we are a sisterhood:
Where one needs to hibernate in her cave
Another steps up to meet the one who
needs the presence of a friend, an elder,
a mother, a grandmother, or a maiden
To see her through the passage of her day.
Wild women, sexy women, brave women, bold women, fearsome women, big hearted women, (yes I am talking about you), funny women, wise women, dangerous women, alive women, awakened women, awakening women, feeling all the feels women, truth telling women, not afraid to be vulnerable today women, dancing women, making music women, storytelling women, creative weaving women, courageous women, loving women, huggable women (yes I'm still talking about you), soulful women, knowing women, respect filled women, rebel women, response-able women, embodied women, more changeable than the seasons women, constant in your sisterhood.
I love that you know (or are learning) that when we abandon each other we abandon part of ourselves
When we hurt the feminine in ourselves
We hurt each other
When we rise and create
Our success is shared.
Such is the way when we realise
being a woman with women together
Can be a powerful antidote for
Thank you for being you
And showing up today
Wherever you are
However you showed up.
