“she came out from the leaveless trees, shy at first, not so quick to trust. but curiosity soon called her out.. & she crept closer.. no smile, her gaze met my humanness.. I asked her to be my friend.. & she said, yes. holding out her hands as an invitation..” - iola
“then she revealed her wildness..”
& she spoke, sharing her name “Cybele..” & went on to say...” - iola
“the whisperings of wild tethering’s that have weaved themselves through my heart strings; have also once & still weave themselves through you.. this is our wildness; that’s been gathered & is nesting within the home of us to be preserved.. may we never forget what connects us to the earth, our mother of all mothers & one another. creature kin ♥️” she spoke, & sparks flew from her lips, fierce & gentle. her red hands held out..
⭕️”red, is for compassion always...”⭕️
“& the thick freak romance of womanhood/creaturehood/manhood, where emotions are not suppressed or condemned, but passionately & healthily expressed... held in reverence amongst the witnessing of one’s own & another’s transformation. growling, playing, howling.” - cybele
