about

Inspired by the celebration that is the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival, I offer this to encourage our hearts toward focusing on the love that we are and that we gather to make!

See you in August!

lyrics

AUGUST MOON

Mothers and daughters, womyn born womyn
and we gather in the light of the August Moon
Amazon womyn and we're out in the woods
and we heal by the light of the August Moon
Powerful women, creative womyn!
dancing in the light of the August Moon
Girls and womyn in the Michigan woods
and we love by the light of the August Moon

Calling all my female friends
Come gather in the place to be
Yeah I'm talking 'bout Michigan
Don't you wanna come Home with me
where I see you and you see me
We witness for each other our commonality

Mothers and daughters, womyn born womyn
and we gather in the light of the August Moon
Amazon womyn and we're out in the woods
and we heal by the light of the August Moon
Deaf women, hearing womyn!
dancing in the light of the August Moon
Girls and womyn in the Michigan woods
and we love by the light of the August Moon

The first time I cam to festival
I learned I'd always been afraid
To finally lay that burden down
I could not believe the weight
of all the trauma I had carried
deep inside my bones
Expectations, limitations I had made my own

We can't do nothing 'bout the way they're framing us
We just keep keeping on, 'cause we know we are love

We know we are love
We know we are love
We know we are love
We know we are love

Mothers and daughters, womyn born womyn
and we gather in the light of the August Moon
Amazon womyn and we're out in the woods
and we heal by the light of the August Moon
Young women, old womyn!
dancing in the light of the August Moon
Girls and womyn in the Michigan woods
and we love by the light of the August Moon

We know we are love
We know we are love
We know we are love
We know we are love
