The Priestess Lives On

They say that the role of the priestess in modern
society has been buried
Like a crumbling temple left to decay under sand
Regarded unimportant by the men who determine
What society should
embrace
remember
and hold dear
They don’t know that the priestess lives on.
How many times have you assured a friend that
they are good enough?
And in how many ways have you given someone
space to fall?
Have you ever given someone time to show you
who they truly are?
Even when they were not sure themselves?
And so the priestess lives on
Can you remember a time when you witnessed
a person kick away their tight bud?
Burst into blossom?
Embrace the sky?
And so the priestess lives on
And when was the last time you kissed someone
goodbye?
Leaving the wet of your lips on their cheeks,
like holy water on foreheads,
like rain on cracked Earth.
And so the priestess lives on
To witness
Hold space
Bless
And heal

This is the work of the priestess
So in you,
The priestess lives on
