SHIVA'S WILD WOMAN by Nirvani Teasley

Every woman is a Goddess!  

Every woman has great Divine potential and need only tap into it to find the creative spirit of shakti that runs through her veins. She is all that is wild and free, yet full of beauty and grace. She is a paradox in every sense of the word. 

This poem is a metaphor for the Divine Feminine present in every woman. 

Shiva’s Wild Woman
I am femininity embodied,

Deity made flesh, perfection 

Embedded in flaw.

Un-submissive feminist,


Barefoot mama on a mission

To strengthen the sisterhood of souls.

The androgynous love, pouring

From my cosmic yoni

Paints the world in supernatural perceptions.

To one I am femme fatale,

Dangerously sacrilegious, ego-stripping

Mata Hari-esque.

To another, the primordial paradox,

The unsolvable puzzle.

To my Self, the constant

Creator and destroyer

Dancing my way

Through the universe.

Some call me

Shiva’s wild woman.

Nirvani Teasley: Aloha! I hail from the great state of Hawaii. I am a Domestic Goddess, mother, wife, grandmother and Divinely Feminine! I am a woman in love with life and all things that transcend the soul. I am a writer and poetess. I dabble in photography, astrology, and tarot. I am a vegetarian. I am studying holistic medicine and Ayurveda. I am a practicing Tantrika, who worships all forms of the Goddess, most especially Maa Kali, the great destroyer of the ego! I am an amateur blogger who loves sharing my passions, inspiring others and being inspired. I am most passionate about women's rights and helping my fellow Goddesses to discover their divine potential. I am on a journey of Self-realization. I love all things sensual, as I know we are by nature sensual creatures.
I believe you are only as old as you think you are! I believe there is more wisdom in silence. I take everything I read and hear with a grain of salt, embracing what speaks to my heart and soul and throwing out the rest. I believe change can only take place in my own heart: So to change the world, I must change myself.

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…
