My Holy Women

My Holy Women
Hail from unforgiving wildernesses
Speaking the words of God’s peace
Through turbulent and violent times.

Only, those words
Discomfort and encroach
Upending the truths we feel
Drawing us into the badlands.

My Holy Women
Are intimate with God
Having wrestled with Her,
Knowing all Her tricky moves.

My Holy Women
Perceive the wildness of God,
Ripping and tearing
At our expectations.

My Holy Women
Are seekers looking to reveal
New and forgotten things,
Sacred mouthpieces of a multi-faced God.
