THE GREAT LESSON OF THE MOON GODDESS by Vrinda Aguilera

The cycle of our moon's phases serve to teach us an important lesson in the realm of the heart…

The lesson is that of the fullness and beauty of giving and receiving. She moves through her lunar flow with the greatest of ease and regularity; seamlessly and gently undergoing her daily metamorphosis with wordless grace.

In doing so she imparts her secret lesson: We cannot keep enfolded in our arms so many gifts without—having reached the fullness of gratitude—continue the dance and release. The time then arrives to open our arms and cast wide the net of blessings for others to receive.

The Great Lesson of the Moon Goddess
by Vrinda Aguilera

Ebb and flow
Ebb and flow
Wax and wane
Wax and wane

The rhythms of the moon queen
Each day she edges a slice more towards wholeness
Wordlessly, without complaint she paints in her sphere
With poise and grace she hovers
Her eyes opening, seeing

Her journey to fullness pushes and pulls
A force that emanates on the female bodies of waters on earth's surfaces
Echoed in the swell of waves and tides of Mother Ocean
The cycle of women's hormonal ebb and flow

Ebb and flow
Ebb and flow
Wax and wane
Wax and wane

Until our Moon Goddess reaches her full ripeness
A glistening sky pearl, jewel of the heavens
The cloudy night skies that have enfolded her
Gather their shadowy drapes and part
Revealing her cooling splendor

She glistens, shines, giving audience to us below
The living, sentient beings who drink in her beauty and wonder
Misty, cooling mother,
We offer reverence to your splendor

Then, the momentary pause of breath half held on the inhale
The inevitable exhale descends, following on its tail
For anything alive is never stagnant
Yet swims through its own cycle of dynamic evolution
The great lesson continues...

MY HEART SEEPS by Edith Lazenby

Courage is not only facing fear, but also looking past fear, to see what lies it tells and truths it saves...
Sometimes I sit at a computer in trepidation. The house trembles and I wonder what I will find. 
Truth is not a fact or a feeling. It may rest on love’s heart and walk with integrity. It may stand beyond humanity in ways we can only imagine. Truth can be solid as earth and fickle as wind. But a wind can know stillness and the earth can crack wide open.
Tonight I found a stillness in a crack and managed to balance there...


My Heart Seeps
by Edith Lazenby
I cannot hold on And I cannot let go. I walk a path I don’t know. I feel moonlight But cannot see Its orb midst The cloudy cold. My hands tremble. My eyes tear. My toes wriggle To grasp earth. I want to stand Tall in the light Yet fear shadows all. Inside I crumble Under the weight I cannot shoulder.

FOR THE SISTERS by Tammy T. Stone

These days, I’m finding it difficult – along with many, many others - not to feel disheartened...
I'm disheartened by the feeling that chaos has descended upon us, at the negativity and fear, the anger and reactivity, the violent spirit of animosity characterizing the times. It’s hard not to give in to the feelings of helplessness and hopelessness, even as we cling to the strong conviction that it is our positivity and our love that will prevail.
Every crevice of my heart goes out to the suffering (and we are all suffering when one of us suffers), and my heart aches for the untold numbers of women around the world who are immediately and devastatingly affected by recent decisions to cut funding to organizations vital to their health and wellbeing, a movement that horrifyingly undermines women’s sovereignty over their own bodies. Words do not do the feeling justice.
It feels to me that the earth itself is overturning, that our fragile grasp of what is right and true, of our incredibl…

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…
