Magic Happens

I create magic spaces
out of desolate places
using colors and fragrances
I mix jazz and samba
hip hop culture and ancient rememberings
of Africa

Flowers appear everywhere I step
I scatter cowrie shells
and rose quartz all about

bones loved by O'keeffe 
are gathered in baskets
reminders of Muskogee ancestors 

the sound of rippling water
springs from an altar to the Goddess

candles, fireplace and mirrors
reveal the beauty of creativity
