I went to a meditation class last night that celebrated womanhood in light of the New Moon. So, when I came across this poem this morning, I thought it was very fitting:
I am a small woman,
bold enough to want
to hold a planet in my broken heart.
Here stillness falls
upon the shoulder of stillness,
as one shadow disappears in another.
Everything is here
in the point of this moment of air.
Under this hand of silence,
this woman comes to life,
like a waterfall undressing itself.
Reduced to a needle of light,
I am completely myself.
In each moment,
the story of the Universe is repeated:
There was nothing,
Look what is coming to be.
You always surprise me.
~ Deena Metzger
To the divine goddess in each one of us – Namaste.
