The Sacred Feminine
(for my daughter and her daughter)
“The Madonna”
by Toni Truesdale

The beautiful dark Madonna comes down to us
Through time, from the beginning.
She has many names: Ana, Tiamat, Isis, Cybele,
Demeter, Sheba, Mary Magdalene,
Mary, mother of Christ,
Maya, mother of Buddha,
Fatima, daughter of Mohammed,
Nana Bakula, Spider Woman, First Woman,
Parvati, Oxum, Corn Maiden, Eurzuli,
Oya, Morrigan, Ishtar,Tara, Gaia, Saule, Amaterasu,
Coatlicue, Nerthus Eve...
She is of the earth and the sky;
She is our mother and our mother’s mother, and so on
To the very first spark of life,
She is always
The Great Mother.
She is us. We are she.
