A Healing Circle for Colleen
It’s dark outside, dim in here.
This borrowed space
was cold, but now I’m warm.
I’m flushed full.
I’m quartz pink.
I’m sweating roses.
We step back, chanting, singing, dancing.
We rush forward, chanting, singing, dancing.
Hands fingers locked, at all times.
We step back, arms pushed down.
We step forward, arms fly up.
We have been dancing this always.
Twice my size,
Older and younger,
I’m all stars.
Books tell you about this power,
try to give it shape, texture,
name label stamp it all theirs,
but this is mine, and ours.
We made this
and it worked.
