IN HER HEART IS A CHILD

To Listen to a Recording of this Poem

In her heart is a child
too innocent to wander wild
in this world.
She suckles innocent Love
from God’s young breasts.
She is a tender child, curious and shy
and longing to be held,
to pour out her freedom
in someone’s arms.
Tough as leather in her stand
against callous death,
she suffers to stay alive
to miracles.
Painting pictures:
colors of freedom, whimsy
and passion of dreams…
she sails her porcelain boat
upon an azure sea
and paints a duck’s eyes
ruby red,
its feet like emeralds in a field of gold.
When she drinks
rose petal tea
her mind caresses light
and moves
with ease to open her heart,
to drop her clothes,
to embrace the sun
into her circling arms,
to hide the moon
under her hair.

Artist's Description

In my experience there are universal qualities that are intrinsic parts of our humanness. What we call our souls are unique blendings of these qualities.

Catholic mystics often described the soul in its relationship with the divine as feminine, the opened receptive one, the one who is purified back into primal innocence and softly melts into the red hot mold of the Other.

It is this inner, pure, innocent essence of the feminine aspects of soul I am celebrating here, but most specifically in women… those mysterious, womb like creatures, made of moonlight, soft, forest moss, panthers, hot communal ovens and bread.
