Conjuring Myth

Ten centuries

Pray, dance, sing

Sounds of magick

Believers parade around the colors of fire

Flames cascade into spirit images

Ancestral guidance calls forth for protection

A circle opens in ritual to bless the living

Tools of rite emanate from inanimate objects

Non-believers view hurt

Through misconception mimics evil

Believers pass down light and positivity

"The snake under those auspices gathers all who share the faith"

From Haiti, to the African plains, across the ocean to the Americas

Surviving hatred, slavery and freedom

Speaking their truth.
