The Goddess

Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Size: 91.5 x 91.5cm
2017

 

her face is a beautiful paradox
both aged and ageless
her presence, striking
a wild fierceness
tapered with sensuality and a hint of grace
she nurses a swirling chaos
internal
gathered generationally through blood and bone
the totality of feminine mysteries
in a world that’s cracking and splitting
a silliness of its own making
this sacred role
of mother, of guardian, of goddess
craves consciousness
not simply remembered as if but a dream
needed desperately
to restore natural rhythms
of balance, connection
of spirit and peace
