Rose Water Ocean

Wearing rose(s)
Smelling of rose(s)
Carrying rose(s)

All for you
All for you

Papa Legba ouvri bariye
sou mache manman dlo

Petals mixed with tears
Yemaja welcomes them 
Her curves guide their shifts against the ebullient waves

Like honey Erzulie carries the sweetness into the deeper parts of the water

And lured by their scent Oya’s whirlwinds lifts them further into infinity

manman ap mache sou dlo
mache mache li ap mache

–Rose Water Ocean (for Ma linda)
