The Shamanic Bag Ladies

For Zoe and Nikki empowered & inspiring shamanic ladies!


The shamanic bag ladies

Boarded the midnight bus

Skirts stitched with magic

pockets stuffed with wonder


Taking the back seats

They unpacked the tools of their trade

With drums and song they

Knitted their stories into the night


As passengers slept the shamanic ladies wielded their magic

Slipping bars of possibilities into pockets,

Packets of joy into jackets

Jars of joy for onward journeys


Finally they pull their patchwork blanket close around them

A weave of dreams and infinite patterns of possibilities

Half in this world and the other.

The stars above twinkle as the bus snaked southwards
