U is for Uzume - Pagan Blog Project

From The Goddess Oracle by Amy Sophia Marashinsky
Illustrated by Hrana Janto


Before the Rock Cave of Heaven
where Amaterasu Omi Kami, the Sun Goddess
had hidden her radiant face
where all the assembled Gods and Goddesses had tried
and failed
to lure her out
I stepped up to the Cave
with utmost seriousness
with grave determination
with proper decorum and a lofty mien
and with a bump and a bump and a bump bump bump bump
lifted my kimono and revealed myself in ways
that caused the mouths of the exalted ones
to water and fall open
Then I played puppet with my labia
and paid myself a little lip service
I heaved my breast over one shoulder
then the other over the other
and landed on my ass
with a bump and a bump and a bump bump bump bump
amidst the explosions of laughter and merriment
of the esteemed crowd
With breasts tied in a knot
my legs spread like a welcome mat
I called in the Spirits
and offered them my body...
but they refused to take it
The crowd howled and laughed as I continued my dance
till Amaterasu Omi Kami couldn't stand it any longer
and rushed out to see what was what
And thus did laughter
win the Sun Goddess from her dark cave
and bring light and warmth back into the world
Uzume is my kind of woman!
Bawdy dancing and letting it all hang out.


Uzume dances her free and fun self into our lives 
reminding us to

Yes, laugh.
Laughter really is the best medicine.

Laughter helps us through difficult times.
It relaxes us. It makes us smile.
It increases our endorphins.
We feel better when we laugh.

No matter what you are going through, find the humor in it.
Laugh and see the humor in all of life's challenges.
