"Inspired" by Gauguin's painting : lyrics and music by Ken Holmes, April 2012


You are woman from the eve of time
Mother of all the tangled vines
Of our tribes and their trials through the years
As they struggle with their hopes and their fears 

You are Mother Earth, upon whom we rely
Without you, we cannot survive and
You are the sensuous, integrated pulse of all that is alive 

You are Mother Wisdom, from whom
The hosts of enlightened beings are born
Wellspring of the fullest love
A single womb of primordial truth
And two full, nourishing breasts
Of knowing the manifest and the hidden.... 

Mother, sister, lover, daughter, female friend
I need you once again to take me in your arms
In a profound fusion of total reconciliation
