the spirit winter

jdubqca


waning crescent moves ever closer
to the morning light
unnoticed by most and understood by few
much like how autumn closes in
chasing away lovely Indian summer days
leaving you questioning how on earth
to survive the inevitable

pine trees shake and sway
sometimes forgotten like afterthoughts
standing tall and welcoming many
taking the brunt of the storm gracefully
buttressing the old farmhouse
natural insulation free for the taking

inside and out fire burns day and night
evident by smokestacks
sending signals to other life forces
both here on earth
and many light years away

Elder’s Meditation of the Day January 19

Redwolf's Remarks

native-american-flute-healing-music.jpg

“Heal yourself – your physical and spiritual bodies. Regenerate yourself with light, and then help those who have poverty of the soul. Return to the inner spirit, which we have abandoned while looking elsewhere for happiness.”

–Willaru Huayta, QUECHUA NATION, PERU

It is difficult to look inside ourselves, especially when we see conflict or confusion. During times of conflict we need to realize that we are talking to ourselves about our thoughts. This conversation is printing in our subconscious and forming our beliefs. During times of conflict we need to ask the spirit to control our self-talk. Only thorough finding that inner place and going there during troubled times will we ever find happiness.

Great Spirit, You are my peace and you dwell within me. Let me look for You within myself.

Dearest love, so I hear you lust for that spark of madness? A spark that grows into a flame? A flame that grows into a blaze? Promise me if this be so, your penetrating gaze never douses My fire, but only adds fuel for the burning. And if you shall honor me, step forward into this white hot heat. Frien not. We will burn. Every ounce of dross that seperates our bond will fly away like ash on the wind. We forge for union. Let us melt. Let us fall. Drip by drip. Let us spill into the motherland as one-love. Melded into a single glowing shaft. A monilith. Rising eternally upward.

we shall not speak of death this day

jdubqca


I awoke to a day without news
and quietly wondered if I had landed in heaven

deciding such thoughts are for birds
incapable of flight
I abandoned the notion
at the same time noticing
there were no winds
and no clouds

nor was there rain or sunshine

I was sitting at the base of a sunflower
that had grown ten stories tall
reading from scrolls that were written
before the earth became blue

there is an end to every story
someone once told me
but as for this one
it is only just beginning

we dove into the waters
and found a way
to not only survive
but live
without the usual oxygen
we once took for granted
