Do You Hear Her Call?

systems are failing,
structures collapsing,
everything is unraveling…

inside,
outside,
a sense of tether-lessness;

there is no neat & tidy manual,
no quick remedy
no matter how bitter,
to bypass this discomfort;

this urgency
that points to itself as
an irrelevant, sickening, lethal fullness;

that cries out
for
purging,
emptiness, 
stillness,
an honest pause;

for
deep
active
listening...

make keen your eyes,
your ears,
your gifts of discernment
and unlimited grace;

make ready
for a new paradigm
of healing;

and although action may be required,
action for action’s sake is futile…

hold steady the ground for radical
disintegration,
dissolution,
indigenous reclamation,
& regeneration…

from the void of not-yet-knowing,
something extraordinarily worthy
seeks to arise…

beneath the high pitched whine of toxic ignorance,
there is a low, steady, resounding hum…

mother earth herself;
wise
impartial
generous
intelligent
powerful
uncorrupt
honest
trustworthy

listen there.

do you hear her call?

how does the flame ignite your heart, sister?
we are all in this together...
