Godspeed, Nicole!

I bless the day your voice reached my ear. Godspeed, fire spirit, godspeed!


Earth My Body from Nicole Sangsuree Barrett on Vimeo.

Earth my body,
Water my blood,
Air my breath
and Fire my spirit

I like to sing to the earth
I like to hold her
She likes to sing to me
She likes to hold me

I carry fistfuls of leaves
I make love to the breeze
I carry fistfuls of bones
I trust they will lead me home

I carry grief on my wings
I know why caged bird sing
Through many turns of this moon
My women have suffered wounds

But my grandmother's with me
Close your eyes can't you see
And my children are here
The rose, the Crow and Deer

I am surrounded by light
The light of stories
I need to quiet my mind
I need to listen

We are surrounded by light
The light of stories
We need to quiet my mind
We need to listen

Earth my body,
Water my blood,
Air my breath
and fire my spirit
