Silent Sunday: When Women Are Warriors


When Women are Warriors…

they still make dinner
and try to explain the world to their mothers
and their daughters.

When women are warriors
they go on being grandmothers
whispering warrior words and singing
ancient songs about love
and justice.

When women are warriors
they plant gardens and walk
the stone beaches, gathering driftwood
and watching sails on the horizon.
They brew tea for friends
and gather in small groups for silence.

When women are warriors
they still think of themselves
as girls, before they knew
they needed to be warriors.

-J. Jefferson
