Women

Every woman,

All women:

I love them all.


We spend lives of nurturing,

remembering, organizing

and keeping the world,

our communities

and our families functioning.


We raise the children and care about all children.


We plan, we shop, we cook the meals,

make sure there is clean underwear, plan the birthdays

and on top of it all we have careers, work 9 to 5 and longer.

We earn the money and pay the bills and


We just keep going with lack of sleep and

long days ahead of us and we don't know,

just don't realize:


How amazing,

How powerful,

How important we are.


Our umbilical cords are connected to mother earth.

We are the soul of the universe:

The wonder of all wonders.



I live, write and contemplate the universe from my cabin in the woods.


I was born and brought up in nature and so try to live as reverently and gently on the earth as I can.


My writing is given to me by the universal energy that connects us all.
