Our time is ripe, our mother shines bright....
We stand at the water's edge, urn in hand
The lid is sealed and on my command-
Ashes lift, the drums beat loud. Hear me-
A life once lived has now been found!
The gale howls at the Moon. My Sisters, Hear that song!
Birth and death, Joys and wrongs.
"Yes, this happend to You my love," they say. I Listen.
They bear witness and the water christens.
A Sea of Tears, but dawn now breaks.
We hold each other. We laugh. We ache.
The sands shall shift beneath our feet
With Dance and Grace we rise to meet-
The Light, a Phoenix, but once a snake,
tail in mouth, coiled tight- make no mistake.
Even so, they slip their skins
For each other. One word. Akin.
The ring has widened, they gather 'round.
And with my Sisters,
a life once lived, has now been found.
