I AM Celebrating Life Together
by Emelina Holland ©
When I was little,
wanted to convert me
to her religious tradition.
I said kindly: "No. Thank you.
My heart beats for a different way."
was calling my name.
I felt her deepest yearnings
she would not say.
I felt guided
to take them with me,
to keep me company
as I was growing,
a special gift to carry
deep in my chest.
later on, shared with me,
wise insights from conversations
she had with her mother's mom
towards the end of her life.
Through my mother's eyes
my great grandmother's
and I felt guided
to remember them
throughout my path.
None of this
made sense at the moment
but it felt right to me...
It just felt right in my heart.
Every time I speak to my mother
I learn a bit more...
Every time she shares more
about her deepest yearnings too,
through her sparkling eyes
and passionate voice,
I get more of my family's stories,
their reasons and their wisdom,
and that helps me understand my own.
I can also see
how their heart-full prayers made me
with the guidance of their unique souls;
as if time didn't exist,
they were weaving me
with their precious hope.
And thanks to the magic of life,
golden thread of love
is the spirit that flows
freely in my veins.
My blood intuitively tells
stories about the journey of my soul
beyond time and space,
while enjoying my body,
while learning from
the natural world around me,
while singing and dancing...
while writing, drawing, painting,
or just being creative...
While enjoying the company of another,
or just sitting in silence and contemplating...
When listening to the music
of the stars...
the sacred fire in my heart,
when keeping it bright and warm...
with this river of deep love
that I AM inside...
While remembering with grace
all of those cherished beings
no longer present today...
While treasuring the presence
of those with whom
I continue to travel with and share
the magic of life,
and this mysterious
golden thread of love...
The sacred fire in my heart,
and this river of deep love
that I AM

I enjoy honoring the changes of the seasons while dancing life at my own pace and respecting my body’s unique rhythms the best way I can. I grow as a person every day, I thrive as a human being with the lunar cycles as I tune in to the moon’s many phases. I like to listen to the birds around me, watch the stars blink at night, connect with trees, touch the ground, and I love swimming in the ocean when I get to travel. I AM a homeschool mom and I feel deeply grateful for the opportunity to teach and play with my child every day. In my free time, I create songs, write poetry or short stories, play with art, and/or some other creative craft, and I love to dance at home to a variety of African drums.
