An All Too Common Grace

Leaves fall to the ground So Precious Yet completely ignored   taken for granted… What a shame, what a shame.. it’s not just the breakdown of elements returning to the soil there is alchemy sublime in every instant of exchange   the transition the movement itself an invisible secret…   the patterns of the past acknowledged, responded to and…

Writer’s Block

This is a eulogy for all the words that never fell on paper. Born from an ocean of impression Between impulse and exhale   Seeds… ripe with potential that were not born to stay     Unrequited love is here again today.      

Another One Bites The Dust

Rant Warning: I rarely go to public events these days but, when I do, it’s because I believe the experience will be worth it. I love spoken word and poetry slams so I was thrilled when I saw my beloved Luka Lesson was performing at Miami Marketta on Sunday. The first half of the afternoon…

Breaking the Cycle of Abuse ~ Avalon Darnesh

Holy shit. I’m having a smack in the face at the insanely unacceptable levels of abuse that women still suffer on our planet. I’m not finger pointing at men, because the whole culture is totally screwed up and it’s a domino effect. Those men were raised by women, and if those women were in their…

A Note to the Menfolk ~ from a former radical lesbian feminist

Written by Hellena Post Once upon a time I was a radical lesbian feminist.  I’d come to that position from having indifferent, dodgy, and invisible connections with men in my childhood, having been molested as a child, and probably partly being really pissed off that my dad had left me and died when I was 7. After…

Radical Self-Love

In 2011, just after New Year and in the blink of an eye – an entire life I had created with my husband of 11 years disappeared into the ether after a domestic violence incident. This was my second marriage and I was shocked. The life I had struggled and fought to create every moment…

Dear Men

Dear Men, There may be some empathy and healing for humanity to access when we realise that women not only feel their individual pain but also are affected by the collective feminine energy field… Depending on a woman’s sensitivity and the place in her cycle, her receptivity and how she is affected by this changes….

Diving for Pearls

The downside to the transcendence paradigm is that it all too often does not acknowledge the wholeness of the exquisite blessing that is our humanity. In fact, if we are not careful it can reinforce the damaging rift between the thinking and feeling parts of us. so that we end up (unconsciously) judging, editing, marginalising or suppressing our true urges and feelings (essentially the feminine aspect of our being)… sound familiar? Breathe into that for a bit…

False Idols and True Grit

There is a woman I know who really pushes my buttons, she looks like Barbie, which in itself is neither here nor there… It’s just the way she flaunts her beauty… as if it automatically elevates her to the status of ‘goddess’.and qualifies her to be a representative of divine feminine ‘spirituality…   I’ve embarked on honest self-inquiry around…

The Muse

  She is…        the hungry tension in the string that calls the bow. All fertile,  open spaces, pulsing with Her tones… Succumbing to Her rhythm… The power of Her flow…. I’m dancing…         In the twilight Between broken and composed.

Venus in the Basement

…. I found her in your basement Drowning in dust Obscured by the archives of your past. …. I asked you about her but you didn’t say much just kind of shrugged and brushed it off …. One night, you drove us in She glowed brightly in your beam …. Such familiar relegation don’t you…
