‘Tis a blustery day that makes me feel strong.
Restless winds remind me of those days
when first I felt the fullness of my womanhood.
It is the kind of strength which conquers horizons,
yet has my feet planted squarely on the ground.
There is no Earth Mother goddess: I am she,
and must be thus on days when the wind does not blow.
