this poem goes along with the song 'Yemaya Assesu'
well I wrote it but I wrote it to this song.
Yemaya is the mother of the ocean. this is an African mantra song to her. I believe it sings of her calling to her children. there is more to her and her story/ledgend if you care to look it up. I think this song is JUST BEAUTIFUL! ^_^
I guess that in the poem I am imagining that she is calling to the sound or vibration....to bring life into fullness..
and then to think of her manifesting images of herself as she fills into the folds of the universe just to feed us.
(ahhhhhhhhhh sigh lol) ya well it sounds better in my head heeheehee

Sequestered in literature

virtual literature,

containing only vowels.

Spread in scrolls across the midnight blue.

There, is where it is sung in drones.....

~

was the sound lost, or

had it never been heard?

~

we tried willing it to be

BUT

it never came....

not now, not then, not yet.....

~

we remained untested, unsure

and unfamiliar with our abilities.

beatitudes aimed at our persona's

did not forgo the intention.

~

Naked

as the ocean without her tides,

the mother cried

~

Standing open on the midnight blue

She spilled silent images of herself,

surrendering her substance into its folds.

*

the Mothers call is always answered
