She breaks down 

He arrives in an instant 

…to her flood of wrenching pain

He knows 

He holds her

His love is ever so gentle

…She is his treasure  

He is the calm in her storm 

He would never leave her 

Even when she pushed and clawed 


My heart in my throat 

As I sat kitty corner in my chair 

Observing love conquer 

She had crowned his heart 

And I found myself silently weeping 

To be one to witness 

…a tender and true love as this 

And as my tears talked a little louder 

They did not even notice

For they were long sunk 

Into the arms 

…of each other

  1. If you want to change the world… love a woman-really love her.
    Find the one who calls to your soul, who doesn’t make sense.
    Throw away your check list and put your ear to her heart and listen.
    Hear the names, the prayers, the songs of every living thing-
    every winged one, every furry and scaled one,
    every underground and underwater one, every green and flowering one,
    every not yet born and dying one…
    Hear their melancholy praises back to the One who gave them life.
    If you haven’t heard your own name yet, you haven’t listened long enough.
    If your eyes aren’t filled with tears, if you aren’t bowing at her feet,
    you haven’t ever grieved having almost lost her.

    If you want to change the world… love a woman-one woman
    beyond yourself, beyond desire and reason,
    beyond your male preferences for youth, beauty and variety
    and all your superficial concepts of freedom.
    We have given ourselves so many choices
    we have forgotten that true liberation
    comes from standing in the middle of the soul’s fire
    and burning through our resistance to Love.
    There is only one Goddess.
    Look into Her eyes and see-really see
    if she is the one to bring the axe to your head.
    If not, walk away. Right now.
    Don’t waste time “trying.”
    Know that your decision has nothing to do with her
    because ultimately it’s not with who,
    but when we choose to surrender.

    If you want to change the world… love a woman.
    Love her for life-beyond your fear of death,
    beyond your fear of being manipulated
    by the Mother inside your head.
    Don’t tell her you’re willing to die for her.
    Say you’re willing to LIVE with her,
    plant trees with her and watch them grow.
    Be her hero by telling her how beautiful she is in her vulnerable majesty,
    by helping her to remember every day that she IS Goddess
    through your adoration and devotion.

    If you want to change the world… love a woman
    in all her faces, through all her seasons
    and she will heal you of your schizophrenia-
    your double-mindedness and half-heartedness
    which keeps your Spirit and body separate-
    which keeps you alone and always looking outside your Self
    for something to make your life worth living.
    There will always be another woman.
    Soon the new shiny one will become the old dull one
    and you’ll grow restless again, trading in women like cars,
    trading in the Goddess for the latest object of your desire.
    Man doesn’t need any more choices.
    What man needs is Woman, the Way of the Feminine,
    of Patience and Compassion, non-seeking, non-doing,
    of breathing in one place and sinking deep intertwining roots
    strong enough to hold the Earth together
    while she shakes off the cement and steel from her skin.

    If you want to change the world… love a woman, just one woman .
    Love and protect her as if she is the last holy vessel.
    Love her through her fear of abandonment
    which she has been holding for all of humanity.
    No, the wound is not hers to heal alone.
    No, she is not weak in her codependence.

    If you want to change the world… love a woman
    all the way through
    until she believes you,
    until her instincts, her visions, her voice, her art, her passion,
    her wildness have returned to her-
    until she is a force of love more powerful
    than all the political media demons who seek to devalue and destroy her.

    If you want to change the world,
    lay down your causes, your guns and protest signs.
    Lay down your inner war, your righteous anger
    and love a woman…
    beyond all of your striving for greatness,
    beyond your tenacious quest for enlightenment.
    The holy grail stands before you
    if you would only take her in your arms
    and let go of searching for something beyond this intimacy.

    What if peace is a dream which can only be re-membered
    through the heart of Woman?
    What if a man’s love for Woman, the Way of the Feminine
    is the key to opening Her heart?

    If you want to change the world…love a woman
    to the depths of your shadow,
    to the highest reaches of your Being,
    back to the Garden where you first met her,
    to the gateway of the rainbow realm
    where you walk through together as Light as One,
    to the point of no return,
    to the ends and the beginning of a new Earth.
