Mother-Matrix for Winter Solstice


Mother … mother

    Matrix of whom I am a part

Elements flux in and out

    a continuation of the Original Ovulation.

In silence I reach to

   increase the space inside of me.

As traction decompresses the spine

Silence and stillness decompress my spirit,

    quickening new electro-chemical impulses

       in my matrix … matter … mater

making room for new gestations

  new birthings.





     reaching for you within me

     reaching for me within you


Birthing you birthing me.

  1. Love this … Glenys do you have a book of your own poetry… would be lovely to share these words with the wider world. Warmest Blessings Yia

    1. dear Yia … I do have a home-made-up book of poems, that I have not published, though I have aspired to. It is a spiral bound A4 about 20 page affair called “Re-membering Who She Is … prayers and poems”, with a Preface – put together in 1998. It could be updated now … a few more additions. I will think more about doing something with it, and also the collection of articles and conference papers that I made up at about that time. Thank you for asking and expressing your enjoyment. xx
