Steady On, Wild Woman

I have learned
that splitting logs,
cultivating body hair,
even watering the garden
with an infusion of stream water
and menstrual blood
doesn’t make you a Wild Woman.
Steady is the new Wild:
The radical act
of raising up the next generation
to best the mistakes of this one,
a need requiring quantities
of Wild mixed with Resilience
and not a small amount of Belief.
Steady on, Wild Woman.
We all rely on you.

Sherry Blue Sky asked the Real Toads to release our inner Wild Woman, no small task.
