blooming a woman

The earth is a womb,

my womb is an altar.

come, let's pray. 


the body, this body

a garden rooted to the core

of a sacred rising sun.

under thick folds of fresh snow,

a rose blazes from my heart.

a golden heart, the heart of the deer.

the lioness, the condor, the moon.

each bloom, an untangled gift

an open blessing

a sparkle arc

a rainbow bridge

to God.

blooming a woman

blooming holy

blooming nourishment

the sweetness of being wild

with curves of the miraculous forest.


the earth is a womb

my womb is an altar,

come, let's pray. 

dance open with wings of

ancient hummingbirds


come, let's pray.
