Kakeesyia

She is coming down the mountain
garments orange and red
some “think” she is destroying
some think she “should” perhaps divert

Most can’t fathom the idea
of a woman leading the way

It’s about time to leave the mommy wound behind
wake up my dear!
even when you were a tiny cell
a woman had to say yes for you to come here

It is time to put down the bullshit
cleaning the house of the ‘real’ destroyers
the mall-makers
the old unbalanced ways

She comes – disguised – by a fiery mask
Can you see her true skin?
What about the magic ferns?
and the seeds?

She is hosting them
She is nesting them
all of us,
yes, all of us, the seeds

Call her Kakeesyia
That’s her real name

She is everywhere
she is IN the wind, she is IN the rain,
she is IN the force, she is IN the flow
She is IN me, She is IN you

Today I witness
“I witness”
What a delightful thing…
to witness!

My heart dances with that magic word:
W-I-T-N-E-S-S

She moves
I witness

Life
Death
always present
always will

I’m not diverting death
I’m not diverting grief
I’m allowing
with consent!

Tell me Kakeesyia,
I am
listening

 

Kakeesyia

Pele by Chris Berry

Flowin’ like a river
Smoke in the breeze
Headin’ to the ocean
Takin’ down trees
Some of them are runnin’
Some of them go hide
I ain’t runnin’ no where
I’m down for the ride
Who’s down for the ride?
Down for the ride
Who’s down for the ride?
Who’s down for the ride?
Down for the ride
It’s time, it’s time, it’s time
Yes the time has come
Oh the time has come
It’s time, it’s time, it’s time
Hey the time has come
Yeah the time has come
E Pele, Tutu Pele, E Pele
E Pele, Tutu Pele, E Pele
E Pele, Tutu Pele, E Pele
E Pele, Tutu Pele, E Pele
When the fire meets the ocean
Makes the water sing and dance
Sing and dance
When the fire meets the ocean
Makes the water sing and dance
Sing and dance
Flowin’ like a river
Smoke in the breeze
Headin’ for the ocean
Takin’ down trees
Some of them are runnin’
Some of them go hide
I ain’t runnin’ no where
I’m down for the ride
Who’s down for the ride?
Down for the ride
Who’s down for the ride?
Who’s down for the ride?
Down for the ride
It’s time, it’s time, it’s time
Yeah the time is now
Oh right now
It’s time, it’s time, it’s time
Yeah the time is now
Oh right now
E Pele, Tutu Pele, E Pele…
By a different light she shines
By a different light
What beautiful light…
Puna, I na go run away
Puna, I gwan go stay…
