A Ladder to the Stars

 

Every evening at twilight

she climbs a ladder

to the stars…

 

Venus is her guide …

As the Evening star

(who also rises at dawn)

this Goddess of Love

is her Muse.

 

As a woman who

respects herself,

she stands up for others.

She has learned how to Love.

 

Giving is as natural

to her as breathing;

every gesture is grounded

in caring for people and the Earth…

 

She honors the gift

that She has been given –

Life in all its heartrending complexity –

embracing both joy and pain

with equal intensity.

 

 

A wise woman, she reflects

a choice we

all have been given –

(regardless of personal story)

to live with an open heart.

 

Becoming a mirror for

those who might

have forgotten,

her actions remind us

that only Love endures
