The Queen of My Self

The Queen of My Self

Our Mother

Since May is Mothering Month, I intend to post a diverse array of articles for the rest of the month, about and for mothers.


Our Mother

by Dale Allen


Our Mother who art within us

Each breath brings us to you.

Thy wisdom come,

Thy will be done as we honor your presence within us.

You give us this day all that we need.

Your bounty calls us to give and receive

all that is loving and pleasurable.

You are the courage that moves us to be true to ourselves

and we act with grace and power.

We relax into your cycles of birth,

growth, death and renewal.


Out of the womb, the darkness, the void, comes new life.

For you are the Mother of All Things.

Your body is the Sacred Earth and our bodies.

Your love nurtures us and unites us all.

Now and forever more.
