The Heartbeat
by Jennifer Lynn

Sun and Moon kiss in deepening twilight, opening
The door; together we sink, bared, in timeless
Surrender, buried in earth to seek the heartbeat.

Blood on the grass… the arrow flew true, pierced armor,
Flesh, heart. The keening wail awakens the dawn, guides
Warrior and soul to rest… home to the heartbeat.

A circle of nine, the oaks ring the knoll, whisper
Their song through the ages. Acorn in hand the woman
Kneels, to seek the Mystery in the heartbeat.

Fires in the quarters illumine the way for
Souls who seek in the night; question and drum echo
The yearning, the pulsating ache of the heartbeat.

Three urns, three women, three faces; three, and the same.
One of water, one of grain, one of healing… one
Voice, one Love, one Wisdom… one resounding heartbeat.

The spiraling path wakes the way of Wisdom, the
Dance of Night, Day and Mystery. You wish to seek?
The door is open; walk, Chiya, with the heartbeat.


Peace and long life… Jennifer

The Calling
by Jennifer Lynn


Autumn falls in resplendent flushes, summoning
Acorns to earth. Oak’s Love offers bounty for the
Journey; the seed hears the Mother calling: come home.

Moonlight kisses earth and circle, spilling across
The grove; the women turn, sway in an ancient spiral,
Each step pulsing with the Mother’s Love: come home.

Beneath the solstice sky, day and night dance as equals,
Share their blessing in equal bounty with the
Earth. In twilight they kiss, sing their refrain: come home.

Waves softly wash from shore, tossing pebbles in the
Sand; the endless churning transforms the world,
Summoning all to the journey. The tide beckons: come home.

Golden leaves softly blanket the earth as twilight
Heralds summer’s end; shadows fall on fields now bare;
Sighing, the Goddess whispers on the wind: come home.

The light of the bonfire dances in the grove;
Drawing my cloak, I settle in for the night. Now,
Live the calling, Chiya — Tend the fire: come home.


Peace and long life… Jennifer
