for the ancestors

for you made this world possible. for you sowed it from scratched. for you made it from ancient into new. all that is stolen never regained but alchemized by you.
you are not forgotten.
I honor your world making. I honor your “imposing beauty” into an inhospitable and inhumane situation forced upon you.

you have always been beautiful…we will always be beautiful(inside and out)…sometimes we need reminding of our own fleshy goodness…of our possibilities…that someone prayed for us and paved a path for us to soak the sun and be reborn.
I thank you for your imperfects and the lessons they rendered. I thank you for reminding me that I am made from the same cloth and thread. that I part of something ancient and good. I am so thankful that I am yours.
