Just when I thought the weight
of holding up the world would crush me…
her breath whispered up against me
spirited titanium into my backbone

realized I had two sets of hands
a second syncopated heart
a mind doubled in its power and force
— a soul double helixed—
a better part of me I hadn’t seen 
fully
whose presence I now felt
completely

didn’t even have to look for her
she was where she had always been:
Everywhere that was life-giving
in everything giving me life.

In the quietude of my ego now put to sleep
the world seemed lighter
because I could hear in the pauses
between our alternating heartbeats
a truth I’d forgotten:

WE were holding our world up

Twogether. — Àdísà, Ejiogbe (One) (A Grown Folks Poem) (Photo: @saddikhaliphotos /////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Good love —which is nothing more than a soul conversation between generosity, kindness, reciprocity and deep attraction— is to the spirit what oxygen is to the body. And when when it is available to you, you forget about waiting to exhale because inhaling and exhaling at that point are simply just a matter of breathing, inspiration disguised as fresh air — Ádìsá //////////////////////////////////////////////

Some days...
i can really feel you…
the warmth of your lips
the curve of hips
the smile of your thighs
your open easy laughter
... the feel of your skin
as you fold yourself
into me
and make me
your cocoon. —Àdísà, Black Butterfly#

Black Love does work—far more often than we acknowledge. It is the oldest expression of human love. It is the world’s oldest monument. The first wonder of the world—older and greater than the Great Pyramids. It is the world's most ancient and enduring institution. The world's very first religion. 
The challenge for us not one of possibility (can we do it well) or of duration (how long can we do it) but rather one of courage, character and a commitment to love ourselves enough to let the puerile illusions of "being in love" die so that loving—the oxygen of intimacy—can allow us to breathe fresh air in a toxic world —Àdísà //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

A healer needs to see beyond the present and tomorrow. He/(She) needs to see years and decades ahead. Because healers work for results so firm that they may not be wholly visible till centuries have flowed into millennia...... The work of healers is work for inspirers working long and steadily, in a group that grows over the generations, till there are inspirers, healers wherever our people are scattered, able to bring us together again — Ayi Kwei Armah, The Healers.

#details, another image from yesterday's blog post about "purging" and letting things go. It can be a metaphor for life! Check it out on the site www.stuylin.com (link in bio). Btw, the tie I'm wearing is the first tie (@gant1949) my mom let me pick out when I was about 7 or 8 years old. Now that's vintage!
