Mother of the Medicine Wheel

Molly Remer shared the following poem written by Sharon Blessum via her Talk Birth website, and I found it timely for the season and wanted to share it with you all.

Mother of the Medicine Wheel
By Sharon Blessum




In the womb of the East Lodge

She gives birth in the morning.


She mothers us with smiles and songs.


In the strong sun of the South

She offers food from Her garden,


Enchantment for the mid-day of life.


In the benediction of the West


She colors evening with sunset


Wraps us in reflections of day.


In the old age of the North Lodge,


She will hold us in sweetness


Cross with us into the Land of the Ancestors.
