Mother Wisdom Speaks- Poem by Christine Lore Weber

Yellow Flower Sun Glow

My sister shared this poem with me and I wanted to share it with you. Brilliant. (This yellow bell flower was shot by me in my yard.)

Mother Wisdom Speaks

Some of you I will hollow out.
I will make you a cave.
I will carve you so deep the stars will shine in your darkness.
You will be a bowl.
You will be the cup in the rock collecting rain.
I will hollow you with knives.
I will not do this to make you clean.
I will not do this to make you pure
You are clean already.
You are pure already.
I will do this because the world needs the hollowness of you.
I will do this for the space that you will be.
I will do this because you must be large.
A passage.
People will find their way through you.
A bowl.
People will eat from you.
And their hunger will not weaken them to death.
A cup to catch the sacred rain.
My daughter, do not cry.
Do not be afraid.
Nothing you need will be lost.
I am shaping you.
I am making you ready.
Light will flow in your hollowing.
You will be filled with light.
Your bones will shine.
The round open center of you will be radiant.
I will call you brilliant one.
I will call you daughter who is wide.
I will call you transformed.


Such truth and beauty. This must be why those who’ve suffered often glow the brightest.


~ Heidi

    Beautiful poem – I’ll have to share it.

    The yellow bell flower looks familiar. Angel’s Trumpets? If so, I have the same plant in my yard. Over 100 blossoms so far this year!

    Thanks for the great read : )

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I
    could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest
    twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.

    Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

      Hi Darcy, off the top of my head I don’t, I used to have that in a a widget, but removed it a long time ago. My web tutor added it 3 years ago…but you can probably still add it on your sidebar in a widget. I would Google Twitter widget for WordPress blogs or something like that- hope this helps!
