The summer solstice call on us womyn to shine!
To illuminate that which s(he) have been hiding, our most powerful courageous self.
It requires us to use our erotic power to manifest our hearts desires.
It calls our most sacred self into exsistence.
And brings fourth our creative spirit to lead the way.
It is your divine right to live into your deepest desires no matter what society says.
Summer passions, Summer love!
Is all about being fully self expressed in the face of feeling powerless.
Its about bieng intimacy in the face of shame and guilt.
Its about loving deeply in the face of never wanting to be vulnerable.
Shades of Red, orange and yellow
Those are her colors
Summer they call her
the colors of the rising sun everyday
flaunting her beauty for the world to see
every morning she
flirts with the moon, giving us only a sneak peek into the journey of the day ahead
She is beautiful and abundant
beautiful black skin, taino features adorned with citrine and coral crystals
But she lives in fear
Survivng everyday afraid of the unknown
Change brings inbalance
She is in constant self preservation
Cause she has been hurt
At the root they took away her spirit
It wasnt her period that had come down
Instead in her belly, the base of the spine
for every womyn rape, abortion, child sexual abuse
Sexual assault, domestic violence
she has been beaten and disconnected from her roots
Who am I?
The questions the summer solstice brings
i feel powerless in this home I call my body
My spirit is homeless
somewhere on this journey called my life I lost myself and my will power
i am tired, I feel hopeless in the face of war on humanity, my community
I am emotionally numb but pregnant with strength and resiliency
Cause this summer is my bold rebirth
I deserve to be here,we deserve to be here
The longest day of the year requires us to be present
Awake and Alive
My people rise with the morning sun
I affirm on this summer solstice that i am FREE, we are FREE!
We have the right to know where we come from
We have the right to feel powerful
I have the right to act on my behalf
on the behalf of all the womyn that cant
This summer I will love my body and its wisdom
for the blood of my ancestors runs through it
and they know what I don’t cause they have been her before
They keep me safe
I will find pleasure in my life cause I deserve it
and I will celebrate my sexuality as a tool of resistence
for you thought I was dead
but the fire in me didnt go out
It burned through all the blocks and fears
that you created in me
and painted over my skin, healing my heart
reconnecting me, grounding me, reclaiming me
recreating me and you
Like the sun
I will rise
on this summer solstice day, i will rise
and you will call me SUMMER!
