TURN IN THE SUN, MY LOVE…

It is an uncomfortable truth that the Carnivals of the Caribbean lands  celebrate the humanity of their people.

o

What  cannot be  masked  are the smiles on thousands of faces; the revelation of civilizations in the reflection of their eyes, their hair and their skin.

What cannot be ignored are the bodies that ask no permission to be; Bodies that move, dance, ache, follow, and give love freely.

g

What cannot be denied are the colours of nations, genealogies and dreams: colours of hope that turn always towards the light.

b

Can you find a way to love in the shadow of indignity?

n

e

Can you remember words of courage that you were never taught?

r

Where is spirituality if not in choosing to love  and where is power if not in dancing in that truth?

c

p

The uncomfortable truth of the Carnivals of the Caribbean lands is that they remind us that life and love are always with us.

You would only know this if you walked amongst the souls of my people.
