All You Were Before— #ThinkOfAPoem

Posted on October 2, 2014 by Marg Herder

Today is National Poetry Day.  I thought I’d join in and post a short poem and an image. This year’s theme is “Remember.”

Full Moon - Photo by Marg HerderWhen all you were before

Becomes all you are again

And all that sings the silent loss

In halting voice begins.

Then will the moon light press your heart

(though night obscures your skin)

To reach your hands, release her

And heal the child within.

Lē Weaver (Marg Herder)
Lē Weaver identifies as a non-binary writer, musician, and feminist spiritual seeker. Their work draws attention to: the ongoing trauma experienced by women and LGBTQIA people in this “Christian” society; Christ/Sophia’s desire that each of us move deeper into our own practice of non-violence; and the desperate need to move away from an androcentric conception of God.
