MONDAY’S POEM: Gaia, The Dark Womb

February 10, 2014 Leave a comment

I am working with a new card deck with artwork by Susan Seddon Boulet and her amazing Goddess images. The other day I drew Gaia; the image, the words about Gaia by Michael Babcock and Lao-Tzu’s Taoteching inspired today’s poem:

Gaia, The Dark Womb

Gaia holds us in all of our empty states:
She bathes our soul in her deep dark water;
She sustains our physical bodies when we emerge
As breathing life in her atmosphere;
And, she welcomes us home into her moist warm
Soul (soil) when we are finished with these bodies.

There she nurtures and gestates us again until
We are ready to free our spirits completely
And merge with her Loving Presence.
