My Sister From Another MotherI dream I walk the earth
Until the souls of my feet
Become hard like shoes
Soul of my soul can open hearts
And awaken dreams
I dream of a gypsy woman
Whose eyes awaken the
Fire in the belly
The shadows dance in the firelight
The ancestors descend
Eyes dark and deep
Glisten through the shadows
Shining in the darkness

My sister from another mother
We sit together laughing,
Laughing every day
Until our bellies ache
Swirling smoke rises
And we speak of secrets of the body
In our secret language
At night we huddle together under the stars
Laughing until our eyes cry
Then the laughter becomes silence
And only the wild sounds
Of the desert night remain
You dress me in your clothes
Made of sparkling earth and star dust
We travel for hours on camels
To the belly of the desert
Where we dance around the fire
We dance and dance until the stars begin to spin
And the sky is set on fire
And we laugh so much we can’t stop
Only as we fall to sleep
the laughter fades to silence
On beds made of sand and sky milk
Yes, my sister
You have a look in your eyes
That bring the dead back to life
To the ones
Whose eyes set our soul on fire
Whose dance tells us
To live our deepest dreams
Whose song reminds
Us to be free:
Come,
Be with us
Be in us
You are us
