We come together at the New Moon
to honor our silent energy
to come out of the neeeded darkness
the silence of Soul gathering
There is a quiet energy beginning with the New Moon
and rising to the Full which
reflects our capacity as women to
become fully developed beings
There is a current we share with our Selves and
and that current is a circle
And that circle has an inner spiral and an outer curve
And this is a meditation
to balance the inner voice
with the outer movement.
