The Goddess Alone
by Phronesus Disegno
Age Group: Adult
Home of all life.
But what would She be...
With no home for the Sun,
With no home for the Moon,
With no home for the Stars,
Home alone, by Herself
With no Father Sky.
Water and Earth,
The source of all life.
But what would they be...
Without Air and Fire,
Even fish breathe the air
of oxygenated water
that would freeze solid
without fire's warmth.
Initiative, Drive, Determination,
Survival, Exploration, Curiosity,
Yes! The stepping stones to Truth!
The other half of Life itself!
Impossible without Fire and Air.
Mother Earth alone,
but without the Sun, Moon and Stars,
Home of what exactly,
with frozen oceans of ice
and no atmosphere,
A dead rock drifting aimlessly in space,
where life could not exist?
The Goddess is Her own individual entity.
The Goddess has Her own power.
I'm sure the Goddess could do anything
That the God can do.
But has She,
Or did She,
Or is She,
Or will She ever?
Well, if there must be a "distinction"
between Goddess and God,
-- and there is for some --
then not I think today,
Not I think ever...
Indeed, the Goddess could exist alone.
But that was never the question.
The question is, does She?
Author's Notes: This poem is a refection of my perception of bias towards the Goddess, which is perfectly understandable in a Matriarchal religion such as Wiccan. I realize this is not true for all Wiccans, but it is clearly true for some.
I have conversed with several women online who have been very helpful in helping me understand why many are Goddess-centered and God-shy. I do suppose that such a phase must be accomplished to make up for previous years of having a Christian God shoved down their throat, before leveling out and stabilizing to finally realize the Christian God is not the same as the God who is the cohort to the Goddess.
Of course, everyone is entitled to their favorite, the one who helps them heal the most and be happy in their life. :-) As for me? The God and I get into all sorts of mischief when the Goddess isn't looking... hee-hee
