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…

 

 

Drumming in Marcus Garvey Park…

And yesterday…Saturday

after the gift of Friday with K. in Central Park

came the ecstasy of drumming in

Marcus Garvey Park

A Holy Circle of

modern-day santeros, babalawos, curanderas

women, men and children

who are called by

the Spirit of the Drum

Grandfather blessing my drum…

Gathering weekly to pay homage

to the Motherland: Africa

Lending body, mind and soul

as vehicles upon which the Orishas may ride…

Giving oneself up as intermediary

between the two worlds

vessels to be filled with the

Voice of Drum Spirit…

Holy Rhythms of Healing and Love

rippling out from the village of Harlem

in never ending circles…

through the city…

the nation…

the world…

“Altared” States Four…

light-bearers…

thank you

o’ bearers of Light

“bringers of the dawn…”

thank you for this day

this time of inner peace and self-knowledge

thank you for this moment of expanded understanding of the

who...

what

and why

of my being

grandfather…

thank you, grandfather

for the energy streaming forth from you

upon whose waves I ride back

in Time

to another place

the plains of Kenya

a forest full of ebony trees…

an ancient carver…

his countenance the color of the wood

he so lovingly carves…

so carefully sculpts…

into his own image:

universal God-man

descended from the stars…

originator of the species

planter of the seeds from which we

sprout…

speak o’ ancient one

as I listen…

speak to my heart

and to my mind…

infuse me with

your wisdom..

your knowledge

use me as a

transmitter of your

power…

help me to accept that

coniunctio…

I am loved...

I am love

“Altared” States Two…

message from the grandfathers…

listen

watch

you will know when and how to respond

to what Life presents…

your actions

will flow

smoothly…

naturally…

from the inside out…

without thought from

or judgement by

the

  ego
