The Shaman's Trial

I was journeying again
And dreamed in the master Dream
The world rose up to meet me
And things are never as they seem
I dreamed that I was full of fear
And that I ran away
But in running I found shelter
And a loving place to stay
I dreamed of cultures immersed in time
And time itself was strange
I saw creatures who plagued all the earth
And they were widely ranged
Each creature was an insect which fed upon our fears
They burrowed deep inside us
And filled our hearts with tears
To overcome these creatures
You must learn to forgive
Every single living thing
Live and let live
To overcome these creatures
All you have to say
Is “I accept you as you are”
And love them in this way.
Then there is only light inside,
No insects burrowing deep.
And joy fills every human heart
Causing it to leap.

Cherish Each Moment

i dreamed a dream just for today
that all my doubt would fade away
i am the moon, the stars, the sun
the universe, and everyone

we should not hate
or we'll hate ourselves
we should live
with love, heart-felt
when you hurt me,
then you hurt you
now does it seem
the right thing to do?

the world is hurting deep inside
with emotions that we try to hide
war and violence
we discriminate
we build our prisons
out of hate

but if we look,
and truly see
we would know
the earth's beauty
we would cherish each moment
and when it's gone
cherish another
going on and on

we are one
so release fear
release anger,
and bring love near
because it is all that we need
to conquer selfish hate and greed

At home,
I'll write a poem.
Finally a place to call my own.

It seems the days are getting colder
Every time I'm feeling bolder
Forgetting to look o'er my shoulder.

All alone.
In toque and slippers
Sipping tea.

No doors or windows keep from me
The terrible draft -40 brings
So I will sit and dream of springs
And summers sitting by the lake
Far from shivers that make me quake.

All alone.
