My soul is connected to the universe and Clara Nunes is transporting me to a place of freedom.
I am in tune. My ancestors’ blood is coursing through my veins.
Beating rhythms that I learned in church
Feeling like the saints, I catch The Holy Spirit
I’m a whirling dhirvish
The Kalimba of our Creator who plays me and controls my sound
I move. I sway. I stomp the earth beneath my feet.
Eyes closed…except for the third.
Soul Free and Wild.
Impeccable even when I fall to the ground exhausted
Even in repose
My Spirit will dance
