A Goddess Myth for Gay Pride Week

 There was a time when the Wind was all that existed.

The Wind did not think, the wind only 'was'.

In the emptiness of nothing the Wind birthed time
and time begat mass and mass begat the universe

and the Earth.

 
The Wind blew across the dark waters of Earth and
land formed and became green.

 
People appeared and the people named the Wind

"Goddess"  and they worshipped Her.

And She became strong and full of Wisdom.

 
The Goddess cared for the earth

and her daughters and sons. 

She found great joy in all of creation. 

 
But one day men came who took the Wind
and remade it in their own warlike image.

 
The Wind became Yahweh the angry,

jealous God. 

 
It forgot its joy in creation.

In birthing.

In its love for daughters of
the earth.

 
For thousands of years the Earth was

convulsed by wars and poisoned by greed.

 
Until it lay dying.

 
Then a cry went up from the people

and was lifted on the wind.

 
And the Wind remembered.

Who She was.

Who She is.

 

Blessed be.

 

***

 

You'll find Her wherever an injustice to
the Earth and it's people is being righted.

She is with the women's movement,
the labour movement, the struggle for civil

rights.

She is with the 99%, the Idle No More movement
and the environmentalists.

 And today she is with the LGBTQ community.


Congratulations to all my gay and lesbian family and friends.

Enjoy your day!
