A poem written during my temple group training with Chameli Ardagh & Awakening Women Institute

alive

inside me, she

I surrender

I laugh, I cry

bliss in my bones

in my womb

trembling with pleasure

or is it pain?

it has no name

but

I am She

my name, Aphrodite

or many other names

and faces come through

and who am I

but she?

of many faces 

in places

between the movement

where the stillness gives birth

to the movement

i am gone

i am awake

the ecstasy i have been yearning for

is here inside

and she

is me

an offering to the goddess in you…

with love,
