Changing Times

The Earth is in labor, therefore

Grow herbs to ease her birthing pains

Grow yourself up, so that you are

No longer child, but daughter

So that you can walk the walk beside her

Woman to woman

Hand in hand.

And where are the men in this conversation?

The men are on retreat,

Sitting in silence beside the lake, staring

At eternity, considering a way to be in the world

That does not require domination,

Considering how

To allow themselves to come home
