From underneath the suffocating burden

and salty tears


rape, molestation, 
addictions, depression,
suicide, incarceration,
domestic abuse, 
abandonment, neglect, 


and even black magic; 


Her lips parted 

and began to sing 

an ancient and powerful medicine song. 

The benevolent qualities of her Ancestors 

guided her as she sang

to the many threads

of her broken tapestry - all tangled and torn - 

until they were straight and whole 

once again.

Etched in lines on her hands and face.

to the scent of you visiting me yet again,

  Meet me there - our place - on the illuminated


where creation and humanity meet.
