- The Sacred Instructions
At the time of creation sacred instructions
were given by the Creator to the people.
Take care of the Mother Earth and the other colors of man.
Respect this Mother Earth and creation.
Honor all life, and support that honor.
Be grateful from the heart for all life.
It is through life that there is survival.
Thank the Creator at all times for all life.
Love, and express that love.
Be humble. Humility is the gift of wisdom and
Be kind with one’s self and with others.
Share feelings and personal concerns and commitments.
Be honest with one’s self and with others.
Be responsible for these sacred instructions and
Share them with other nations.
A Simple Wish
A simple wish of solace, a
simple wish of peace
Spreads throughout the world
but suffers none the least,
Words so easily spoken that
they fall upon the ground
And only a child’s ears can
ever hear their sound.
We lift our heart so easily but
what about our mind?
We think that we know
everything but do we ever
The peace that lingers
deeply, way down inside
Silently sits upon the dust of
last year’s Yule time shelves.
We bring it out to play, when
snow is on the ground
Decorate our dwellings, with
our merry little sounds.
But when the time has come,
and we put away our toys.
Ever wonder why we cease
our merry little noise?
We gladly stop and say hello
to a stranger passerby.
But come mid summer to
that stranger do you still say
Soon the time will come
again and Yule will soon be
We will gather those among
us that we truly hold so dear.
So don’t forget the others, of
those you do not know.
When you see them stagger,
upon the winters snow
For they are god and
goddess just like you or I.
A simple wish of solace,
upon a winters sky.

Girls’ Poem for the Elements
East is first
with the rising sun.
South is next
right and bright is
West is third
turning like the ocean.
North is last
all is released into
Imagine a woman
by: Patricia Lynn Riley
Imagine a woman who believes that it is right and good she is woman.
A woman who honors her experience and tells her stories.
Who refuses to carry the sins of others within her body and life.
Imagine a woman who trusts and respects herself.
A woman who listens to her needs and desires.
Who meets them with tenderness and grace.
Imagine a woman who has acknowledged the past’s influence on the present. A woman who has walked through her past.
Who has healed into the present.
Imagine a woman in love with her own body.
A woman who believes her body is enough, just as it is.
Who celebrates her body’s rhythms and cycles as an exquisite resource.
Imagine a woman who honors the body of the Goddess
in her changing body. A woman who celebrates the accumulation of her years and wisdom.
Who refuses to use her precious life-energy disguising the changes in her body and life.
Imagine a woman who authors her own life.
A woman who exerts, initiates, and moves on her own behalf.
Who refuses to surrender except to her truest self and to her wisest voice.
Imagine a woman who names her own gods.
A woman who imagines the divine in her image and likeness.
Who designs a personal spirituality to inform her daily needs.
Imagine a woman who values the women in her life.
A woman who sits in circles of women.
Who is reminded of the truth about herself when she forgets.
Imagine yourself as this woman.
