the gathering – celebrating International Women’s Day

March 8, 2019

New collaborative piece with the incredible @wolfmumma to celebrate International Women’s Day ✊🏻💗🌿.

The Gathering: you are weary / stripped of bark / you have been shedding leaves / resolve is blossom snatched by the wind / sometimes it is too much / to know you have been hacked & pruned / fashioned into furniture / oiled & shaped for utility (or fantasy) // your heart is not inanimate / she is the tree whose roots run rich with connection / when you are felled the Earth grieves with the heat of the sun / still, your daughters rise from dirt-packed seeds / each day you teach them to hold ground / celebrate together in light // when the moon is new she proclaims the song / of the women who stand as a forest.
