Sacred Space

Sacred Space

 

Into the valley of the Earth

rocks cloaked in thick fluorescent moss

towering trees adorned with trailing fern…

… the only sound, a soft musical

 chuckling of running water and the pristine echo of bird-call

damp earthy richness permeated the air

decomposing humus, nourishing the soil…

 

Ancient vibrations

filled the valley

feminine energy

sacred cleansing…

 

This felt like women-space

 

circular

fertile

womblike

 

 

 I could almost hear

the echo of ancient rituals

in the whisper of the leaves

in the gurgle of cleansing water

I imaged the aroma of woodsmoke and ash

fragrant branches

fanning a sacred fire…

 

 archaic chants

rose into the canopy

women-space

healing place

hands joined

in a forgotten women’s circle.
