When The Drummers Were Women

when the drummers were Women
the people danced on a Sacred Stone
and all time merged
earth water fire air flowing in and out of the aether
form pouring itself into the formless 
and back again

a circle of Goddesses
or were they Pilgrims
banged their simple drums
stone on stone
and magic imbued in sound
gave birth to Love

my dear One
close your eyes
feel your Root
let Yourself be moved
listen to the rhythm of Your heart-drum
keeping time making music

You too know how Love yearns to sing
for the Sacred Stone
is the very Earth beneath You
and You
You are the Divine Musician
who has made it all
