Ah

   the weather is finally warming…

soon it will be time to

return to the

   park…

to the

   drums…

drumming back to freedom

   under the heat of the city sun…

back to

   Africa…

back to

      freedom

forgetfulness

we are back in the

released from our

   rat-infested tenements

from the

drugs

crime

grinding poverty

and

devastation

that has not abated since first they

dragged us

bound

and

chained

across the waters

to this

new world

this new version of

hell

called

modern

western

      civilization

   and so…

in the noisy

crowded summer heat

of a Harlem park

we beat our drums

and dance our way

back home

to

Africa...

to the

   Motherland

to

   Freedom

To All Djembefolas…A Message From Spirit!

733

I am Djembefola

I am Woman-through-whom

Spirit speaks

When Djembefola is connected to her drum

As one instrument…

The Drum is Woman…

The Woman is Drum…

The Voice of Mother Africa speaking

It is the energy of Woman

Feminine Energy….

Openness…receptivity…giving…love…

The creative, unifying Energy of Djembefolas…

Rippling out in beats of Love…

Nourishment from the Mother…

Healing the souls of Her wounded children…

Drum on! Djembefola!

Become One with your Drum and continue your Holy Work!

Drum on!

 

A Call To All Djembefolas…DrummerWomen!

8 26 2012 027

Djembefola! DrummerWoman!

Dust off your drum

new altar 9 4 2013 025

Return the Goddess to your altar…

Isis…Mary…Yemaya…

Let our dream of peace, love, health, unity, wholeness..

echo in the beat of the drum

Let our drums reverberate throughout the Land

awakening all of the Mother’s children

from their deep slumber

Let our drums drown out the war cries

soothing the fears of a wounded and frightened humanity

Let the cry of the drum be heard

in far-flung corners of the multiverse

Grandfather blessing my drum...

Grandfather blessing my drum…

Dust off your drum my sister!

Let us Join with our brother-drummers

Let us heal together…
