Sister Banner 2



The Sister from Below
is seductive and wild. 

She is not concerned about family or financial obligations. 
She doesn't care if the children miss their supper,
or if the mortgage goes unpaid.  
She is the Muse, and all she cares about is poetry! 
She can be dangerous - a home-wrecker. 
Yet she is essential to our souls. 


     "A passionate love letter to those who yearn to be heard. A must read
for every woman
who longs to write poetry."

-Maureen Murdock

Author of The Heroine's Journey and Unreliable Truth: On Memoir and Memory

     "...Naomi Ruth Lowinsky offers us a superbly detailed investigation
of the powerful, mythic forces of the world as they are revealed
to the active creative self. Don't miss this enlightening and fascinating book."

-David St. John
Author of Study for the World's Body: New and Selected Poems and Prism.

The Sister Speaks...

The Sister-crop I am the source of the creative in you, in everyone.When you forget me, you feel dead inside,
lost, out of touch with your center.  I am the tree of life whose roots go down into childhood, into the realm of the ancestors, into the dream world, into the myths that shape you, into the
secret power of the very language you use.


 


The Sister - crop2

Make a regular place for me. 
Invoke me
every day, every season. 
   Honor me and I will teach you
the alchemy of words,
how to find just the word that will heat up
your image
like a hot rock dropped into the pot.
Honor me and I will teach you
what men have forgotten,
the alchemy of the body,
our luminous organ of perception;
how only in the body, through body,
can light and spirit be transformed
into being, and into the world. 
Let me know you, carnally,
and I will give you joy of the body,
words for the body, a sacred path.


 

The Sister from Below

 
Know that I long for you
as you have longed for me.

I am that spirit known only in the flesh.
Make a regular place for me in your life.

Light me aflame.
Do not forget me.
 Do not forget me...

 

The Sister from Below
WHEN THE MUSE GETS HER WAY
by Naomi Ruth Lowinsky

Naomi Lowinsky has given us a remarkable,
 fearless, and full autobiography.
Speaking in poetic, psychologically sensitive,
scholarly dialogues with her shape-shifting muse,
she has created a new form . . .
This is a beautiful book to treasure and spread
among worthy friends."


-Sylvia Perera
Author of Descent to the Goddess
and Celtic Queen Maeve and Addiction
