Live today…through the vibration of the drum.
All, of our ancestors.” -Voodoo Honey “Elegua” check it out it’s on SoundCloud.
So. Im learning that even tho Twitter is so benevolent amd gives me the option to keep adding characters forever and ever ahmen… that don’t mean write a goddamn blog on twitter.com. no. No, Syn. That is the reason amazing sites like WordPress exist, lol. So. I’m gonna do my best to not post long ass shit on Twitter and actually show my blog the love she deserves. Yes, she is a woman. Because duh…women are smarter and superior. The Goddess made it so. Not even a debate.
So. I came here for this:
I’ve never played drums professionally…I’ve probably only played on an actual set of drums…maybe 3 or so times in this life. However. The drum and I…we have an impenetrable bond, I can’t even deny. More so the sound and the vibrations of the drum. I can definitely give thanks to my ancestors from the Ivory coast to the Caribbean for this connection.
I am in pure love with the drum; my ancestors made ours out of goat or sheepskin…& I remember as a kid how my fingers felt the first time I held one. The vibration as I tapped away…it felt as though my hands and my fingertips had done that many times.
& Now as an adult, I can recognize + acknowledge the specific ways that we are always connected to our roots. Give thanks. I always wondered why I was always creating every surface I touched into a drum, lol. I still kinda do. Ok I do…a lot. I can’t help it, & neither would I want to. As they say #veryconnected (got that from The Very Black Project on Instagram) but I love it because it’s so true. No matter how far away i move, what country I wind up in, what city…I’m always and forever connected to my roots and I love that. Hella grateful. Give thanks.
A vision of you
In our living room
In the pool
Your legs are open
I’m looking at you
Goes up and down
Sweat dripping off your brow
Sweat dripping down my back
This place Is where we are at
Where river and ocean meet-in love.
And I don’t know which number cloud I am on
and you’re love, your gift is the high I’m on
I’m not sure what it is I feel
Love is overflowing
In this moment
Amidst your screams and moaning
I know now what it feels like to BE In the Moment
Cuz as your breathing
I breathe with you
I want you to know I’m here with you
I’m here for you
And I’ll never leave you
I hold your hand tightly as you squeeze mine
Every breath and every scream freezes time
You are mine
As we are crying tears of Heaven
Reign down and you bear down
And deliver the greatest gift I would ever receive: our child.
Give thanks to the Great Mother. Give thanks to the Great Goddess.
Peace and Blessings Manifest. Axé.
How do you fuck like that?
Your body is the perfect fucking muse, Love
time for dessert
She glances at my plate
Vegan German chocolate cake…
Would you like a taste?
LL Cool J style
Lick my lips
Bites down on bottom lip…
shall I feed it to you? I promise you’ll love it
Sight: never dwindling
I was hoping you would…
A Tuesday evening never felt so good.
I humbly and kindly ✨ ask that you listen to the great, Ms. Lauren whilst reading. Or not 😘
She got this Vybe like
Like dred. Locked-
For the cause
she got this Vybe like: Pause
you have beauty shining
A Light that’s Blinding
Dîvine. Perfect timing 🙏
I was kind of a dick to you…so
You were one to me.
All Is Fair In Love & Growth
Ah. Fuck. I’m human.
Human…as are You.
So. I look back, reflect and I laugh
The Four Agreements as my staff 📖
On my behalf,
I’m glad that you are a part of my Growth 🙏
(Spiritual) Being on this human plane.
Axé. Grateful to you, my Teacher(s)
And This time you could Be.
& I’d understand
Each and every one of your quirks
Get every single joke
and that smirk
You raise your glass
raise the hash
We collide when we smash………
Hot tempers cause temperatures to rise
& I always end up bowing
As I rise-
Between those thick ass thighs
in Sacred. Venus
Ain’t shyt between us.
Realness And fucking genius.
