May I live this song completely in the next era of my life. Thank you Melissa Michaels, my dancing tribe, Aotearoa and Tui, and the women who paved the way.

lyrics

Daphne

Core of the apple carries the seed
Medicine comes when the heart's made to bleed
Sensual sanity, call of my cells
Ancestors made of heaven and hell

I dreamed that flowers poured from my mouth
And my tears were potent seeds
My feet sprouted roots
After all my bipedal wandering
And my arms and fingers branched skyward in prayer
My blood ran thick, amber gold
From a hole in my heart
And from my womb a whole forest grew
And the sun and rain kissed me often
And the wind rocked me to sleep
