HER HOLY TEMPLE by Maxime Caroline Lichtenberg

The words which crafted this poem came to me recalling a vision I once had... 

The nature of the poem is sacred sexuality, and describes the remembering of sisters living together in a holy temple. These sisters were initiated in various rites of passages, and it was the time of the Goddess, perhaps even predating the impending gender roles and identities society reformed to later. These sisters kept a temple. 

One of the many pleasures the priestesses held dear and practised, was the act of self pleasure and orgasmic pleasuring of other sisters, as a connection portal to the alchemically divine. These sisters were aware of the true power and love that sacred sexuality represented, and used it wisely. Pleasure was, and is, a birthright. Orgasmic pleasure, is in truth a portal of connection to the divine energies and gateways of the cosmic womb. One may commune with Mother, or Father here, one may be bathed in light and receive an abundance of blessings. This remembering was beautiful and a very real cosmic trigger in my body. 

Love is the ultimate state, and pleasure is our gateway. The words, the sanctity of this poem, are a direct transmission from the cosmic center of the holy web of the womb. Think, gold, liquid light, alchemy. Play. Pleasure. Love. Creation. Manifestation. We, the priestesses, as holy vessels of communication between realms. Divinity.

gold, liquid light
blinds me
in my ecstasy
we are in a temple crafted in Her image 
we flow, easily,
my pleasure
your priority
gently, respectfully
there is a serene comfort
in this receptivity
i allow myself to fall
there is two of you
or two of me
this is how it once was
we open portals
of ecstasy
 connection to the higher realms

Maxime Caroline Lichtenberg is a wordsmith, creatrix and alchemist. As the alchemist, she identifies as everything - or everyone - a manifestation of energy as simple as being a “Spirit.” She has been gifted the title of “The Bridge” by the more subtle realms, and is living her life in a way which allows her to connect the spiritual to the society we currently live in order to bridge understanding, and even trigger ancient or cosmic remembrance. She would like to see people become aware of their sacred responsibility as Earth guardians and connect back to themselves, each other, and even a higher power through the practice of conscious acts of love and devotion. Through writing, she hopes to elevate the messages and the cries of our (collective) subconscious and bring them to the surface. Only then is it possible to activate a process of healing and the purging of the dark and often painful, to return us to Oneness as divine agents of light.


  1. This is a very beautiful poem and important subject. I feel close to your words as I'm experiencing some sort of undefinable awaking through my sexual/sensual being. I'm beginning to light up! After years of darkness taking over mind/body/soul I've found a path to open to all that is. The Earth and nature is beckoning.....always. Thank you so very much for expressing your experience. It is beautiful art!

    1. Thank you Rachel <3 I really appreciate it. What you are sharing on your own personal story is all so wonderful to hear: "I am beginning to light up!" Blessed be sister. - Maxi

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…

THE JOURNEY by Mary Oliver

Today we honor Mary Oliver (1936-2019) and all the words she left behind. May they inspire you on your journey! 

Excerpt from Mary Oliver’s book Long Life: Essays and Other Writings:

"Poets must read and study...but, also, they must learn to tilt and whisper, shout, or dance, each in his or her own way, or we might just as well copy the old books. But, no, that would never do, for always the new self swimming around in the old world feels itself uniquely verbal. And that is just the point: how the world, moist and bountiful, calls to each of us to make a new and serious response. That's the big question, the one the world throws at you every morning. 'Here you are, alive. Would you like to make a comment?'"

The Journey
By Mary Oliver 
One day you finally knew what you had to do, and began, though the voices around you kept shouting their bad advice-- though the whole house began to tremble and you felt the old tug at your ankles. "Mend my life!" each voice cried. But y…
