One cannot out vie my daughters,
Declares Mother of Spirits,
And this business of competing
With them
Must end

Mortal genius, die you must
I AM the power to recreate
Blessed, emerging from my dust
You’re cursed with will to dominate

I AM no limit, pure love, free
Giving total life to total place
Still you seek to breach and sell me
To buy me back in my own space

YOU emulate my outward portrait
Nature’s end – abounding source
Control it, waste it, try to kill it
For what’s known only by my course

Process and direction
My secrets? Collective women tell
More than one can speak my language
Hear my wind, cast my spells

What is created with me
Multiplies, withers, comes back to be
is required to live through me
Trace it, chase it and you will see

Petty trials, torture, setting ablaze
Confounding powers you mistake
Standing in horror, stupefied, amazed
At what good I offer for your sake…

One cannot out vie my daughters,
Declares Mother of Spirits,
And this business of competing
With them
Must end

missed ye
reading this reminds me how much I’ve missed you, all through my own absence and yours. this reads like a triumphant return a clarion call from the antediluvian She spirit that so many systems, linguistic, mythological, social, corporate have tried to put down, to the smaller She Spirit that lives in every woman, in fact in every one, willing to embrace a power that seeks not to control but liberate…

and this read is liberating, empowering, and all the wonderful things I remember your poetry for.

Missed You, Too!
I give thanks for your kind words! For the few times I'd logged in over the past year or so, I wondered where you were. And yes, as always, you have nailed the meaning in this piece to the wall. I look forward to enjoying the space more this year!

Witch hunter
The feminine I AM resounding and laying down the gauntlet. Nice first person declaritive style - from the Earth a heeded oration. Very cool poem!
