Totem Of The Downed Tree

whale eye
broken walrus tusk
house of spirits


clouds fly in
reunion of old friends
from the great beyond

Entry to the Realm of Spirits

hollowed through
passage to
the other side

Great Pumpkin

will light the way
keeping dark spirits at bay

Mountains beyond Mountains

You may recognize the mountain by name or shape
but to truly know her is to walk the contours of her mass,
to watch her reveal the secrets of the seasons,
to remember and to feel the spirits of all the other feet
who have touched her and whose hearts have found home.
