Radiance

A Poem by Livana Lowell
"

a feminist poem

"
The moon is full of milk
like a woman's breast 
like Mary standing on her crest
round and supple like Diana's Lips
to which the wolves profess
and drink the light poured onto the earth
and nourish the cheeks of mothers close to birth
and like a ball gown
sweeps its edges over the ground
upon the grass like blessed rain 
upon the feet of little girls in play
upon the backs of women who walk on the porch to contemplate
the ethereal essence of the divine
or admire the way the moon commands the waves onto the shoreline
upon the eyes of women leaders
CEOs, doctors, lawyers, and prime ministers
upon the crowns of wisdom, golden like sunlight
and like stars illuminating the nights.

this is amazing. Im a sucker for anything astrological in poetry and this was just majestic, its beautiful how you used the details of the moon to its majestic extent. Im very impressed. I have some of my own but this was like milk and honey against my sweet and sour sauce. lol

Amazing use of description. You words alive and worthwhile. I like the flow of thoughts leading to very good ending, I told my daughters. Never accept less and become what you want. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry.
