"A girl enters the ocean… At the edge of the ocean a woman beckons from the ledge of watery darkness with beauty almost too much to bear…"

SACRED FEMININE Imagery "The ancient and elementals exist as a presence among us, continually speaking through images and words of our shared origins.
Beyond the Temple Walls
an open window,
so much light in the closet.
On the east side, a black rock wall
moss glows when the moon is wide.
A pomegranate tree, a hidden tree
bends, gravity ripening in its blush.
I trace the crescent of your back,
the kiss, vajra tongue,
erupts the inside out of my body
the sky alive inside us.
The Mountain Opens
