once upon a kundalini

the serpent inside me whispers "repent"
coiling her supple limb around and about the space I never knew I had
hissing as she rides the breath here and back
sliding through the rainbow
shedding patterned scales of truth
crumbs on the trail
lure for the birds
singing pure truth
building our own myth
stretching out of my spine
letting these roots hold me here
still sorry
but for now and never forever again

Walangari Karntawarra "Colours of the Rainbow Serpents"
