"Therefore a person contains both the likeness of heaven and earth in himself or herself...A person has a head in which there is clarity, inspiration, and reason - just as the sky contains light-giving things, air and winged creatures. A person also has the means to bring forth new life and the desire to do so - just as the earth has the means to bring forth greenness, fruitfulness, and animals." --Scivias II.1.2
-Hildegard of Bingen (1098 - 1179)
The creative urge
never goes away.
A moment of clarity
in a midlife womb;
between crisis and chaos -
a new life takes hold.
