Ibeyi – River
Oh Great Goddess Oshun Let Me Come to Your Waters that You May Wash My Soul.
Capture me in Your Ecstasies! Wash over Me washing away the filth of modern life, Corporate America, capitalism, greed, anxiety and pain. Flow through me Queen of the Rivers with your cleansing floods. Casting off shadows I dive deep into your essence. Through the sweetest of baptisms I am made whole. I hear the voices of my ancestors calling me. Calling me back home.
My mind touches the picture. Spirit possess me. Visions reach across centuries and your mind is at one with mine. I feel your emotions. Your fears. Your voice crying out across time. Ancestral spirits rise up from seas, oceans, rivers crossing the veil to those still earthbound crying, “Hear Our Voices! Be Our Conduit to the Future!” Orisha speak through me! Orisha Speak through me!
Middle Passage and Trail of Tears join forces! Come forth with Power and Grace!
I eagerly await your knowledge, wisdom and energies O’ Goddess of Creativity!
