I am a woman: A poem by Waheeda Hussain

I am the earth
I nurture the quiescent seed unborn.

At other times
I am the sun
I give warmth and the seed awakens into a sapling.

I am rain
The sapling dances into lush greenery.

In the darkness
I am the moon
Bright and shiny.

Within me
I am the universe
I hold the entire galaxy.

I am divine energy
I am Shakti, gaia and yin
I am a woman.
