Small and Fragile

A beautiful soul is small and fragile…

    1. Soul, Spirit, and Wisdom are traditionally referenced with the feminine pronoun, and poems are often focused on these. I believe the reason is that Soul, Spirit, and Wisdom each describes the interplay of some sort of abstracted reality with our sensual bodies and conscious minds. Soul, Spirit, and Wisdom are in themselves beyond the grasp of our minds and hearts, though they may be intuited and utilized in a partial sense. In their full sense, they are “the other” and so unknowable. This “total otherness” is usually referenced in male terms, such as “God the Father” as that aspect of God that lies beyond what we can approach and understand. The “partial interplay” that we can have with this “otherness,” on the other hand, is described in female terms. The “she” may be an illicit lover, or a devoted mother, image, but regardless she is that part of Soul, Spirit, and Wisdom that we are able to experience and to incorporate into our lives.
