Words for Aviva, after Kripalu workshop, Oct 2012:
Aviva, Aviva… Aviva – means spring
And spring to the people around you bring
The birth of the new, transformation of old
The magical cycles of life thus unfold.
Through sadness and sorrow, through rage and despair
You stood so strong with no doubt or fear
Like babies we frolicked and tantrumed and yelled
While you our madness so lovingly held.
You met our demons and looked in their face
Then simply addressed them with kindness and grace
And softened the demons, the dragons have cried
The sorrow has vanished and hope arrived.
You witnessed it all with a smile in your eyes
You knew: at the end will the Phoenix arise
And mystical spirits will swarm from above
And will be the air vibrating with love.
And magical circle will close again
And windows will open to endless domain
And you will be gazing like a proud midwife
At this celebration of spirit and life.
