The Divine Moon

A WRITER, A FOLLOWER OF THE ORISHAS, A SANTERIA PRACTITIONER.
 ~ In Oshun’s River by Becca Tzigany ~
Iba Oshun olodi!
Praises to Orisha of the River!
Spirit, clean me inside out
Flush through my veins till I’m flowing
Revive my body from a lonely drought

Singing across the river
Drum notes of my thoughts back and forth
Roil them till they’re smooth, white stones
Polish the mirror of my mind
Take out the knots with your comb

Iba Oshun sekese!
Praises to Orisha of Mystery!
Spirit, clean me inside out
I pour my sorrows into your waters
As my heart lets go of fear and doubt

Strong, brown, onrushing goddess
How do I dissolve my old habits
That charted my course till now?
Help me attach not to objects
But to the currents pure spirits arouse

Iba Oshun ibu kole!
Praises to Orisha of Seduction!
Join with me inside and out
Adorned with brass bangles shining
Making love in the depths and throughout
