Sisters, we must be the healing light
in these dark and perilous times.
We must keep the flame of LOVE
and well tended
in our hearts.
We must be a mosaic of brilliant colors
that lifts broken spirits
and adds joy to our tortured world.
We must keep HOPE alive
and burning bright,
like lightning in a bottle.
We must keep a thousand lanterns lit
in the dark realms
where evil lives.
Each of us
has a color to add.
Each of us has a bit of light to bring.
Each of us must carry an ember in our hearts to share…
We will not be undone, subdued, or subverted
by the evil armies of hate, bigotry, exclusion, or fear.
Try to control us at your peril!
Sometimes we may falter,
sometimes we may feel overwhelmed and alone,
but we will triumph
because we are a tribe of wild-eyed creatives and
We are the sensitives,
we are the barometers,
we are the rune readers,
we are the canaries
in your coal mines,
and we know
it is sacred and terrifying task
in this broken world.
Try to silence us at your peril!
We know how to transform ourselves,
cocoon when we need to.
We carry the womb of creation in us,
the wisdom of our ancestors in us,
and the stories of our foremothers in us.
The hearts of all the wise warrior witches,
blue stocking suffragettes,
feminists, anarchists, housewives, mothers,
and just plain believers in a better, kinder, saner world
are beating strong & steady in us.
Underestimate us at your peril!
We aren’t worried what we look like
or what you think of us.
are not yours.
We won’t be dismissed,
We are the seed carriers,
the hearth tenders,
the dancers in the temple of joy.
Ignore us at your peril!
We are every color
and we are every speck of light.
You cannot destroy the divine feminine.
It is the vessel of all creation,
the soil in which your seed either sparks to life
or withers in death.
We are your mothers, sisters, lovers, comrades, allies
and we are here to give birth
to a new world
where love wins,
where freedom thrives,
where joy abounds.
Tamper with us at your peril!
with all my heart
these words from one of poems…
“our life is resinous
with the kind of sap
that clings and glazes to even
the smallest moments,
a honey catching up our joy,
our love a deep blush
in a world of color and light.”
Keep The Faith Sisters!
Be Of Good Heart!
Step Into The Circle Of Color and Light!
Much Love and Gratitude From Kaitlin
