Red girl ©

      Written by: Arose N Daghetto

 

Rebel girl, skin like fire

Tell the Lord your heart’s desire

 

Dancing doe, blazing tornado

Stirring sandy winds of smoke and shadows

 

Fire manifests in your human form

The rage of God in the image of a child of corn

 

Crimson child with hints of scarlet

By product of the Holy Spirit, cosmic starlet

 

Passion is your paternal, Beauty is your maternal

Elemental in the spiritual, extraterrestrial in the physical

 

Fleeting blood voyaging through the vien of life

Symbol of a beating heart, pulsing strife

 

Nature’s princess, the world’s empress

hindered by labor pains of grief and injustice

 

Red girl wilderness burns like wildfire

As you dance into your Rites of Passage full of desire

 

Red woman, dance on…

Dance on, Rebel, dance on…

Yell if you must but dance on…

Scream if you will, just dance on…

 

Carry on in that warrior’s ancestral dance

Until your barren land encounters the tip of chance

 

Dance with all your might until you find

The Holy Grail and favor of the Divine

Dance until your wilderness is disturbed with light

and the rustling of the trees invades your silent night

and the stomping of your dancing feet ignites

smoke signals over the black trees in clouds of white

 

Dance strong in the rain, dance through the fall

Dance harder through the snow but most of all

 
Dance until daylight breaks

and the birds sing

Dance until you achieve your full reign

Dance until the shimmering trees refrain

And The Great Man emerges, saying your name…

 
Breathless Red child, you survived the storms of womanhood

God has given you a Helper as He promised He would

Now when you dance, you don’t dance alone….

You dance in Holy matrimony…

two warriors plus one.
