The Divine Feminine

by Maria Duncalf-Barber

desertThe divine feminine
speaks to me in poetry
shows me love in words
recognises my life in breath
teaches me to live in action
gives me courage
touches me with wonder
lets me see the truth
of the divine all around me
comforts me on my journey

The divine feminine
walks with me in the desert
sees me for who I truly am
brings peace to my weary mind
enthusiasm to my soul
bestows riches upon me each day
protects me in times of strife

The divine feminine
honours me and all I do
knows me
reminds me of my beauty
inside and out
creates love in me
that I can share

The divine feminine
is beside me
with me
for me
helping me
to be the best I can be
and loves me unconditionally.
