The Time Project

Beatrice Greene



Remember the women
who dared to speak, to be.
Their stories and ours

must be told and re-told
to break the grip of silence
from without and within.

We place our ears to the ground,
listen to rhythms of Nature
and Earth, both our mothers.

Gathering strength from
just below our navels we stand
shoulder to shoulder, then kneel

to doula each other into new life
we women of all colors, beliefs,
we women of all nations.
