Divine Mother

creeping, subtle darkness
wrapping itself around corners
·
shadows ever dancing
in possibility’s periphery
·
endless, waving waters
churning, foaming mysteries

·

enveloping, consuming earth
gritty, uncontained and saturating
·
·
she’ll take our light again
penetrating, but never scarring her
·
collecting all our debris again
not drowning, but letting them float

·

shapes shifting as they flow
movement’s unconstrained freedom

·

accepting our crimes like our dead
digesting histories, creating futures
·

·

wonder at her many marvels
fear her for her unlimited power

·

those things we hate her for
inspire, intrigue and animate us
·
forgetting our fragile dependence
while still suckling at her abundance

·

lucky she is so much more than us
all our greed could never diminish her
·

·

she gives for the being taken·
allowing our imaginations to refine
·
she lives among the forsaken
comforting the hunted in her arms
·
deeper still than the sky is wide
collapsing endlessly into fragments

·

no matter how we try to avoid it
we all return to her when life leaves us
