Remembering the women Jacqualene Mahadevi Ryan

Sister, you are so welcome here
Just as you are
Your presence is a precious gift
That only you could bring.
Your beauty, your heart, your longing.

I witness and receive you
Just as you are
In your wholeness
And you offer me the same....
Shame, fear, contraction evaporate
Holding on melts into letting go.

Such beauty, strength, wisdom
Just as we are
How did we ever forget?
Together we are remembering....
