I Am She Who Has Always Existed

I am the ruler of the underworld
I am a heavenly body
I have been a muse since time immemorial
Countless sonnets were inspired by my reign
I go by the names of
Snow, Hunger, Wolf, Flower,
Harvest, Hunter, Blue and Crow
I am the light within the shadows
I am the endings before new beginnings
I rouse your passions
I bring solace to your soul
I am there in your darkest hour
I rule over transitions and balance
I am life and death
I am the embodiment of reap and sow

I am the rhythm of the earth bridging all seasons
Wolves speak to me in ancient tongues
Sea captains hunger for my guidence
Oceans rise and fall under my sway
Tides succumb to my pull
I am the power of love and madness
I am the magic and I am the spell
I bear witness to your sins and secrets
I am the keeper of your regrets and hopes

Seek my wisdom and I will give you…
The gift of transformation
Call upon me and I will teach you…
The eternal cycle of harvesting and letting go
I am reincarnation
I am feast days and festivals
I am She who has always existed
I am more powerful than the sun
I am Lady Luna
I am the Shekhinah
I am Maiden, Mother, Crone


Unifying the Shechina (the Divine Feminine in Judaism) with the feminine archetypes of Maiden, Mother, Crone derived from Greek mythology.

In her book (above), Rabbi Leah Novick expounds upon the Maiden, Mother, Crone aspects of the Shekhinah. In Jewish mysticism, the Shekhinah is associated with the moon and Kiddush Levana, the monthly sanctification of the new moon.

“One who blesses the new moon every month is one who greets the Shekhinah and brings Her down to shine upon us.”

Rabbi Yochanan/Babylonian Talmud Sanhedrin 42a

In Jewish thought, the Shekhinah is the Divine Earth Mother, the Divine-who-dwells-within and our redemption from the underworld — meaning the pain of our human condition and our dark nights of the soul.

Snow, Hunger, Wolf, Flower, Harvest, Hunter, Blue and Crow are names given to full moon phases in Native American cultures, reflecting the nature of each season.

  1. Oh, I LOVE poems about the Moon. You covered it all, just about, except the internal tides of our menses…I always felt that this was our soulborn connection with the moon.
    Powerful poem.

    1. I replied to this and autocorrect wrote “I’m so happy to know it read mated with you.” It was supposed to say “resonated” not “read mated.” You really gotta wonder about autocorrect sometimes. How does “read mated” even make sense? Haha 😀


  2. I love this this you being a moonbeam and so to could I be, maybe we can meat in a weird dance some where in our universe, and sing a song for all to love. Wouldn’t that be neat! I usually keep away from these kind of prompts, for the same reason, that I am not that good under pressure, But when I hear a piece of music, or sea a piece of art or a photograph that moves, me then I write about it, and some of my best poems are written in that fashion. So pleasant dreams and keep on shining for us all! 🙂

    1. Your’re the best Charles! Thanks for all your kind words and all you share with me. The universe has introduced us and we are singing our own song together, as two souls whose paths have crossed through the mysteries of the internet. Sweet dreams on moonbeams, Momma Moon. 🙂
