A BLESSING FOR LIFE by Solodad Maria

 Times are merging…

 I have noticed through my work with tribal and indigenous peoples that the healing methods of the past are being resurrected today, in our present times.

I offer you this blessing in the spirit of ancient times, when women gathered together to –as we are doing here- to elevate one another. Such heartfelt openness blesses our lives from within. The woman who sees beyond illusion is freeing herself and others. Namaste! My sisters of heart and soul! 


Blessed one, deep inside
I open to thee and embrace your being
Sacred woman, sacred soul, we are blessed
To know each other and all that is ...

From the blessed one who created all
I fuse with thee and open my heart
To the longing and depth of all
That we know...together...
Forever blessed with life.

In knowing this...I awaken my soul
To the holy hour of sacred one
Who resides so deep and is known as "I"
I welcome you here to be blessed inside.

My woman of soul, you are blessed...
With life!
I know you are with me, amidst the deep
Longing to free you are "I"
I accept your wisdom and soul as myself.

In longing for life, the woman inside
Sweetens the gifts, that her pure heart knows
Are seated within the blessings of the "One"
My heart is at peace, knowing...
You are free!

Blessed woman, all that you are...
I love your magic! Your Divine soul!
I am awakened to you...knowing you
As "I"...I reside with you...
Everlasting soul...

I AM STILL HERE by Janavi Held


This was composed by a very gifted and beautiful soul: a regular contributor to our poetry project, and dear friend of mine, Janavi Held, whose life is gradually being taken from us by an incurable illness. She has been suffering from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Internal Adhesions for six painful years now, and neither her insurance nor the government healthcare will help her. She reaches out to us, her sisters, as a last plea. This is a poem she wrote yesterday on her birthday, in which she offers us the gift of her friendship. May it touch your generous hearts and inspire you to reach out to her in her plight.

Dear Friends,

The last time I was able to leave the house was by ambulance on my way to the hospital. After many long hours in the emergency room I was admitted and taken upstairs. After everyone left I sat on the hospital bed, knees to chest, bracing my body against the pain and trembling.

The light of this cold day was fading. I turned my eyes to the la…

IMAGINE A WOMAN by Patricia Lynn Reilly

This poem invites you to look upon yourself with loving kindness…
Gazing at your own true reflection, you will discover that everything you have longed for “out there” is already within you! I invite you to love your creativity fiercely. Faithfully plant seeds, allowing under-the-ground dormant seasons, nurturing your creative garden with love and gratitude. In the fullness of time, the green growing things thrust forth from the ground. It's a faithful, trustworthy process. AND it takes time and patience.  Blessed is the fruit of your creative womb! I invite you to trust your vision of the world and express it. With wonder and delight, paint a picture, create a dance, write a book, and make up a song. To give expression to your creative impulses is as natural as your breathing. Create in your own language, imagery, and movement. Follow no script. Do not be limited by the customary way things have been expressed. Your creative intuition is original. Gather all of life into your inner c…

DEPRESSION by Veronica Carpenter

Here goes my vulnerability A heart on a sleeve The typical person who looks at me May not see the same me that I live with daily The mind in the air, swirling with possibility When the darkness rallies/gathers/swirls When I am left to solitude This paper-thin garb unzips Here comes depression          
No I don’t want to advertise So flash a smile Those who are close get to see Through the veil, it’s really not that thick Circumstances in life like to stab at the rib Stumble, fall behind the door Shut out the world Feelings well and weigh down Strength hidden deep in the core So deep that sometimes it’s forgotten Here comes the darkness My old friend Sweeping through my every move  Doubts, fears, un-named masked men Oozing like honey, sticking to everything
Patience is required to get on this ride There is a cycle but its pattern is unknown Slowly my gift will unwrap itself Stay on the path Coming back to that which never truly left me Just laid sleeping out of exhaustion from the fight Dormant in winter…
