   “The queen’s chair” by Dobee Snowber


Sit on the mat
of your own imperfections
constellations of longing
brew beneath winter
the ripe darkness


You are not separate
from the earth’s spinning
she is within your cells
calling forth tenderness
from tissues of vulnerability


Listen in the shadow
embrace the disruptions
attend in the unknown
here is a companion

The stars of your own turning.

Bodypsalm for Mother’s Day

“Harmonic Clash”  by Dobee Snowber

Mothering is part of us  
being mothers, daughters or sons 
dwelling in the questions and
 in the land of thanks
where mother’s have given us
a garden to grow in.

There can be rocks or blooms
in the landscape of mothering
sprouting from the mystery of life
loving, loosing, loving.

A flesh of intimacy
an intimacy of flesh
Closeness with muscles 
 whether we are physically mothers,
have mothers, or are spiritual mothers
we are invited into

 The great sea of mothering ourselves
breathing compassion to each part of us
love ourselves with a mamma’s love
letting vulnerability have its way

Give yourself what you crave
fire or gentleness, passion or rest
rejuvenation or respiration

Tread softly in your journey
and know this:
the Divine Feminine
is beneath your feet
and loving you
with the whispers of stars.
