Helping to Chart a Lost Continent
Every woman is part of a lost continent
that flourished once like Mur, Lemuria, Atlantis,
until some ancient cataclysm swallowed it whole, submerged each woman's story under the sea. Fathoms deep,
we slept away our pain for eons,
but best forgotten.
Now, despite that,
everywhere you look another speck of land appears,
thrusting itself upward after a long and arduous labor. It is a delicate business,
helping to birth a continent,
requiring every woman-voice to make the new/ old landmass whole and seamless,
a foolish, fearless heart to chart it.
