Seasons Of My Life…

 Summer…

As I move as carefully and gracefully as I can

Through the seasons of my life

I am finding that summer is for indulging my passions

It’s the season for setting free

Inclinations and inhibitions

Hidden below the icy snows of winter

Summer…

My season for taking chances

For daring to follow the bold and bodacious beat

Of my carefree heart

Summer

My season of freedom from the wears and tears of seasons past

My season of breathing in…and letting go

The season in which I dare

To throw caution to the wind

And fly off to the Heavens

In pursuit of my wild and wanton soul

On its return to

Paradise

Summer…

My season for fun!

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…
