She is the Source of Life

“The Source”

by Toni Truesdale

The Imprint of the human species is female;

For women are the source of life.

In female hands is the vital essence, water;

Our fecundity and the renewal of the generations.

In ancient Egypt the ankh is the symbol of Water, Woman

 and Life,  Eternal.

Dispelling Fear of the Dark


By Toni Truesdale

Our shadows are connected symbiotically

To ourselves and to the light.

In internal battles

Linked to social roles;

We search all our lives to dispel

Carefully socially constructed fears.

As more deeply, archetypes;

Speak to us of

The most ancient of stories

We reenact mostly in dreams

That tell the truth of human history

In the symbolic language of myth.

International Womens Day 2018

Five Faces with Stars

Think, how each tiny creature

Is magically connected to all things

Here, on this blue planet;

Coexisting in this solar system

The huge universe is spinning

Around our awed and observing faces.

We are related to the stars

As are elements in creation.

Remember the fragility of

Our symbiotic relationships

To the Earth,

Planet to Sun,

Solar system to Universe...

And to give thanks for the blessing of each day.
