RAMKUVERBA

Mother & Sons.png

Much of life remains a mystery. Why is a Mothers timeline longer than her Children’s? Why do we feel love even when there’s differences? Why is there beauty and balance even when the elements are separate?

 

I don’t know. It is what it is. Expressing a calling does not require one to know, it requires one to listen, accept idea, and to be bold enough to let it have a place.

 

Ramkuverba’s legacy represents an ongoing thread of love with a reminder that life unapologetically lends us grief as well as glory while we borrow time. 

 

Often I witness her being remembered dearly by my Mother. Her wisdom continues to guide the Women she embraced as her own.

 

To the ancient Grand Mother who bestows blessings upon her modern Children. With compassion, and sacred song that mysteriously timed it's arrival to this calling…

Red Love

who am I to write this? I am no one

I am in the Field, the Field is in me

 

the Field says, take the fire of death

and strike it with love, I dare you

 

blood whispers: know where you come from

remember that blue will come

and blue will go

 

but never will your heart glow red

when you are repeatedly not in flow

with the thread

 

to be in flow is to know

to know the truth of what came first

what came first was you and me, and mother

 

you and me, our love, and the Field

see? our love came first

the love came before the blue

no one makes the case

the case in the shadow, the unclaimed case

if you go, i go, if i go, you go, and so, we go

 

the irony no one will see is 

the fire of death circles the fire of love

because love came first

 

love has an order

like every case that needs an order

blood makes it's case:

the only real case, the only real order, is the order of love!

 

don’t get lost in the blue

get found in the Field

 

in any case, sooner or later, there will be a fire

and you will have to strike it red with love.

1903 - 1989

'ROSE"

song by Ayla Schafer

 

*

 

Softening all the hardness 
Melting all that’s frozen 
Letting go of the sorrow 
Dissolving into love all the shadow 

We are woman, we are bringers of life 
We are vessels of love, expressions of the divine 
Sisters hold my hand, you are stronger than you know 
We are opening to love, we are learning how to grow 
We hear the call, we are returning we remember 
We are like the rose we are stronger than we know

Ancient mother, moving through us 
Roots growing deep in our ancestry 
Medicine woman, daughter, mother and lover 
Reclaiming the power of our sacred memory
