Mother's Words - June 2017

From Spirit Walker, 1993, by Nancy Wood

 

Why look for answers, my child,

Among the people you meet?

Why believe there is fulfillment

In your narrow life of work?

 

Why sacrifice the gift of loneliness

To fill up the time with diversion?

 

Look inside every living thing you find.

Feel the energy of rocks and leaves, hummingbirds

and cactus.

Dwell for a moment in a single blade of grass.

Discover the secret of snowflakes.

 

In these patterns lie harmony, my child.

In harmony, the universe.

I am a Woman - July 2014

 

Nancy's daughter, Kate Lynch, chose this poem.

 

I am a Woman, from Many Winters, 1974, by Nancy Wood

 

I am a woman.
I hold up half of the sky.
I am a woman.
I nourish half of the earth.
I am a woman.
The rainbow touches my shoulders.
The universe encircles my eyes.
