This poem is an expression of the diversity of Witches across the globe, and the healthy defiance, sense of humor and confidence that should be expressed by each and every one of us. You can view this poem as a slideshow at http://www.slideroll.com/publish.php?s=trtpyhhg&browse=1&ref=0

 

We are a bunch of wild women,

pounding drums and shouting to the sky.

We make the neighbors peek through their blinds

at 3 AM and whisper profanities.

We are gray-headed.

We are obscene.

We are pierced and tattooed

in the name of the Goddess,

and we do not respond well to threats.

We pray in full view of the public.

We lay hands.

And we go naked without regard

to fences and county ordinances.

We pour wine into hollow stumps

and wave knives at each other.

We have sex – yes, sex! -

and we enjoy it.

We are unapologetic.

We honor Hera with hamburgers.

We mark birthdays with body paint.

And we light fires,

mostly in sunken pits or porch grills.

Our houses smell like burned herbs

and look like disaster areas.

Our gardens smell like live herbs

and look like paradise.

We throw stones and celebrate the dead.

We eat pomegranates all year round.

We know twelve ways to cook a placenta.

Our church services end in margaritas.

We cast spells and own cats

and chat online.

We have been vilified, watered-down,

exaggerated and ignored.

But we are the ones

with the wind at our backs

and the fire of devotion within.

We are witches

and we are not afraid of you.

I love the humor and the descriptive strength of your writing.

All of the images you painted are so vivid, contemporary pictures of women, timeless at the same time.

Great work!
