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

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

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

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