Woman as Tree

I used to draw You
As me
As woman
As tree.
_
Root intertwined
with rock. Fruit
hanging full and sweet. 
_
Weaving relationship
through rhythmic felt sense,
divine sight, and naked feet.
_
Growing deep,
growing deep,
growing deep. 
_
Long limbed
leaf and bloom
rising to infinity.
Reaching out,
growing wide,
feeling
free form
fullness. 
_
Bold,
beautiful,
and unafraid
inside.
_
With no need to hide. 
No need to hide.
No need to hide. 
_
I used to plant You
in me.
As woman.
_
A rising
Oak. Willow. Evergreen. 
_
Trusting the vitality
and the Mystery
of our rich fecundity. 
_
Rooting and rising,
A synergistic unity.
_
Blooming and releasing
A dance of cyclical eternity.
_
Allowing and guiding
a much vaster ecology. 
Expanding to the spaces in-between.
_
I have begun to garden.
Tending You.
In the landscape of me.
_
We have never been disconnected. 
Never not here, never not we. 
Now i see. 
We are
never ending.
Vital.
Life giving. 
Energy. 
_
Forgetting finds its way
to remembering. 
_
h e a l i n g follows f e e l i n g. 
_
Here I am. 
breathing,
you as me as woman as tree,
rising
from the great heart
of the divine Shakti She. 
_
Blessed be.
