"As two lips come together to form a kiss, and two hands together send a prayer, I call to the Divine Twins, the blue bird and the winding snake, who together form the radiant Peacock, Melek Ta'us. Brothers, lovers, each reflected in another’s eyes, listen to my prayer. Teach me to know both the earthly and celestial realms. As two candle flames can burn as one, help me to recognise and hold within myself both polarity and resonance. Divine Twins, the Marassa, the Ibeyi, by all your names, help me to know myself in all my parts. Thank you and blessed be."
