Women of the Q'ero Nation, Peruvian Andes,
during despacho ceremony honoring Pachamama
(Mother Earth/Cosmic Mother)



Sun Sol rise.

Caress the breasts of the Andes,

warm our hearts corizons,

illuminate

our perch

among the worlds mundos.


Hanaq pacha.

All that is Above.

Kay pacha.

Earth,

Water,

Weighted Beings.

Ukhu pacha.

All that is Below.


Take Love as the llave key,

open the puerta door

to everything and nothing.


Hummingbirds come.


Hummingbirds come

build your bridges,

Colibri Puentes,

across planes of reality,

heart to heart,

make way for our prayers

to travel far.


The power to

heal Her

is in the intent

intento

to heal your

attachments

to Her.


By candlelight enflamed

and breath kissed,

muchos besos,

coca leaves:


Santa Tierra Pachamama.

Holy Earth, Mother of All Things.


Taita Inti.

Father Sun.


Chaskiwayku.

Receive me.


Yanapawayku.

Help me.


√Ďanta kichawayku.

Open me.


Pijchuwayku.

Cleanse me.


Hampiwayku.

Heal me.


Little spirit, espiritu,

hovers,

vibrates,

transforms

bones of skeleton

and fear

like stones

rumis into quays.


Radiant feathers, plumas,

turn

into bright brown eyes,

smiles, sonrisas,

plumes of children

in costume

and laughter.


Souls dance their

way home,

nuestra casa,

taking their place

within community.


By candlelight enflamed

until Sun, Sol,

caresses the Andes

twice more

amidst the infinite,

infinito.
