When She Became God

 

As her sisters' voices faded

the last priestess was moved to speak.

As warrior-kings spread across the land,

to take the body of the earth-mother,

the last priestess decreed:

Let Goddess now be known as God.

Let the Queen of Heaven be known as King!

That these men

who make others

quake and bow before them

know there is one King above them!

Let the warrior-king temper his sword

in the knowledge that Spirit

will be the last judge.

And the last priestess said:

Making Her into Him, we will build

a secret door inside Spirit.

Someday a seeker will find in Him

the great She

Who nurtures all.
