Brigit of Kildare


What does a woman want?
That was the question, like,
to be or not to be.
From where and quo vadis?
Feminine and masculine are
the given dispositions of definition.
Brigit, the doorway and candles,
and light, and sunrise and
the heart. These are your
tools while the masculine
will build.
The hedge, your boundary of
sanity and hermitage.
Spiritual heritage, and intuition.
What does the woman want?

Hildegard of Bingen,
pray for us.
Mechtilde of Magdeburg,
pray for us.
Julian of Norwich,
pray for us.
Hadwijch D'Anvers,
pray for us.
Brigid of Kildare,
pray for us.
