Poem by Maria Dulce Leitao Reis
Today is a hell of a wind
But it’s even good…
Want to know why?
So come on, everyone out!
Don’t you happen to have
A more hidden corner in your garden
Or at the back of your house?
If you don’t have a neighborhood
This is in case any of you feel shy
Or less comfortable.
Now that we’re all ready
Let’s start the exercise.
Cupped open hands
To receive the gifts of the universe.
Rip a scream from the depths of your being
And scream at the top of your lungs.
The scream will stop
when the field is completely clear.
The scream and the wind are good allies
The cry is regenerating and liberating
The wind will blow away all the dirt
Like a magic broom!
Now it is the good energies that dominate us.
How do you feel?
Light, optimistic, hopeful!
There is a fresh smell of fresh laundry in the air.
Open your nostrils widely
And breathe in the tranquillity and harmony
Of the good days to come.
Now that everything is perfect inside
Let peace and love in…
Why spoil life?
Living in peace is damn good!
