POETRY THROUGH MY MIND'S EYE



Light Gatherers by Montserrat



PRELUDE




When I began writing again, I discovered that the whole structure of my work had changed. I was a different kind of writer. The poetry you saw earlier was written between 1965 and 1979. In 1979 I got married, my life changed and the words, like my faith, began to slowly disappear.

Now, the Goddess has given my work a chance to come alive again. This new work is still young. It is very recent and I am still exploring all aspects of how I write. Come join this exploration with me, for you are as much a part of it as I am. We are in this together as we all grow in faith, strength and wisdom, for we are but One; we are the children of the Goddess.



ABOUT THE POET


What happens to a person affects, to a great extent, who they are and what they do with their lives. But people also have the ability to institute change in their lives for the better.

I had been unhappy for a very long time, and went from a marriage to a mentally disturbed man directly into an abusive relationship that left me a shattered version of my former self. I was an empty shell. It has been nineteen years since I walked away from that brutal relationship, and sought out the excellent counselling I so desparately needed, teaching me that I was the victim and not the cause. But I felt that I needed something more, something to strengthen the faith that I once again found within myself.

If it had not been for an accident that left me disabled and bed-ridden for much of the time, I never would have had the time to start the exploration that led me to the Goddess.

People say to me "oh, how terrible ...you can't work. You don't have a life...how can you go on?" They are wrong, though. I am happy with, and proud of the person I have become. I am thankful for the spiritual growth I have attained, which has guided me to this particular place in my life, and while I may not be able to work at this time, I continue to lead a creative and productive life. I continue to study and write about the Goddess, in all her many forms, and am working on a collection of my poetry. I continue, as well, to grow closer to the Goddess every single day.

Yes, this is definitely not the kind of life I would have chosen for myself, but it is the only life I have, so I intend to make the best of it. While learning about the Goddess, I discovered that great strength within me, that is also within each woman, known as the Divine Feminine. The Divine Feminine has shown me that I can go on with my life and be the best person that I can be. For that, I thank the teachings of the Goddess.
