I hear a calling
Through my left ear
I feel their presence
They talk to me

The shamanic psychic
who was loved by her children and grandchildren

The community leader
who created a safe space for the neighborhood outcasts

The vivacious spiritual nomad
who raised the secret love child of her lousy brother

The larger-than-life lover
who cared for everyone who had the pleasure of entering her life

The misunderstood wanna-be actress
who died angry at the world

These are women in my lineage

I know I am connected
I know I am protected
I am deeply rooted

I am a sum of these women
Everything that they were
Everything they wished to be.
