Walk softly so that you will hear the sounds and find an awakening. (Form: Archimedes Pi)
Vision Quest

The smoke rises,
cleansing body and mind.
Naked, alone,
I tread the highest peaks seeking a sign,
listening for the Great Spirit's voice.

I wait patiently,
at sunrise and sunset,
holy ground
sanctified by pine, sage, and generations of ritual
that cry out in my blood.

Brother Eagle provides
Brother Wolf teaches adaptability.
The wind
quietly whispers the secrets of the four harmonies.
My quest completed, my journey begins.
