Lighthouse in the Storm

I wrote this poem for the Older Women's League of Seattle, when they brought brunch to Tent City on Mother's Day, 2000:


Are we children on one side of midnight,
        adults on the other?
Women until the kindling of one cell,
        then instant mothers?

If humanity wants children
        we must raise them
in the flesh and the spirit of women,
        in the flesh and the spirit of men.

We must all become mothers to each other
before the womb of the world
will kindle any future.


Human society is based on the fundamental recognition that in the storms of life, we are each other's harbor. I am glad to have joined an online group founded in that recognition, a group of women committed to nurture each other:
