On a woman’s face

By Kate. May 20th, 2010

On a woman’s face / a wild primeval smile

Shining with the power / Of one who’s lived

Since the dawn of history.

Since the dawn of words.

She is not elderly /merely ancient.

Ancient beyond imagining /and forever young.

She has borne children, outlived them / outlived whole tribes

Outlived whole nations, languages and peoples /born of her.

She is the Eldest among women.

::This is only a vision::
