“Out of the Darkness, the chaos of time,
The whirlwind gave birth to the Mother Sublime.
She woke to Herself knowing life had great worth,
The dark empty void grieved the Great Mother Earth.
The Mother was lonely. She was the only.”
“With a thunderous roar Her stones split asunder,
And from the great cave that opened deep under,
She birthed once again from her cavernous heart,
Bringing forth all the creatures of Earth from the start.”
~Excerpt from The Mother’s Song, in the Book “Land of the Painted Caves”, by Jean M Auel
