Come Home

A poetic transmission inspired by the return to my body temple

Dancing to connect with my body

Come home to your body

Allow the mountains to remind you

There is dew on the windows

& frost on the hood

Did you hear the thunder?

Did you see the lightning?

When the rain comes pouring down

Will you dance in the storm?

Come home to your body

The senses hold the key

Put your hands on your skin

Where have you not touched in awhile?

Feel the texture of your face

As if you were caressing a lover

Itโ€™s okay to take it there

Touch

Come home to your body

Pause & look up at the stars

Do you see how they dance

To the beat of the drum?

Do you see how the fire light flickers

On the tops of the trees?

See

Come home to your body

Inhale the scent of pine

Walk among a sunset-blazed forest

Seeking the proper branches

Which are ready to burn?

Break each stick with force

Move stagnation from your cells

Itโ€™s okay if you donโ€™t understand

Smell

Come home to your body

Drink more water

Sip on some herbal tea

This apple is cleansing my liver

This spinach is making me strong

Tell dairy she has to leave

Taste

Come home to your body

Take three deep breathes

Then shake your hips to Hilight Tribe

Ask the questions

& find the answers in your movements

Have you ever danced with the ocean

Eyes on the sunrise?

Listen to Native American flute music

& the sounds of a storm

While you gaze at the night sky

Hear

Shooting star! Make a wish

I wish to empower women

Through reminders of body sovereignty

Come home to your body

All you seek is within

Through breath, sound & movement

Access your medicine

Your heart is the entrance

The door is unlocked

The highest love awaits

With open arms

Deep breath in

Deep breath out

Welcome home
