I thought I cried (and how beets speak)

All morning I observe the sinuous feelings

I chop. Tears flood from my eyes and my face burns.

I cry without crying, for all the grandmothers before me

chopping onions for their family.

For the matrilineal soup

For the children fed with green, red, and orange wisdom

The red slices through with a power so provocative

my soul arrives

It swirls around the little trees and imprints the veins

with what we once knew as nourishment

With rooted laws of nature

tapped into the core

with long dark wings above the ground

her red round belly bulb shoots up undeniable beauty

reaching up towards life

and down towards sustenance

And the liquid swirls. The heat rises like a serpent invoked

like a mad mermaid

like my tears challenged to come by an onion

She talks to me in her layered voice

poking and prodding and asking me

what i want. commanding me to add it to the pot.

I'll cook it up for you and serve it hot, my dear

It's not as scary as you think.

The steam takes my tears

and those red red round roots

dare me to belly up

Red Tent Temple Movement

"The Sisters are Coming"

She says in her voice of surrender and knowing.

We sat, together, in ancient circle, invoking the Red Tent. Come out of hiding great Mother, for we hear you now! We are no longer hushing you silent. If we speak, she will speak. If we heal, she will heal. If we listen, she will answer.

The Red Tent Temple Movement is Rising. Brewing inside Gaia's belly like hot molten rock, ready to burst open and transform the landscape of our culture. This is so necessary. So needed. So basic.

We as women are ready. As Mothers, daughters, and sisters, we are ready. We are joining together in our commonness and our uniqueness. We are manifesting a real place to hold us while we exist in mystery. The Moonlodge is a welcome womb, a place to be whole and holy, to be nourished and not rushed.

Every Month, on or near the New Moon, there will be Red Tents - not just here in CT where we are - but all across the world.
