Kwe’ explained he’s an elder, teaches the
ways of his people from their hearts – stories
and songs; spiritual rituals link 
us all – we are all connected, beasts too.
Dedicate songs played to our ancestors,
their wisdom and knowledge has been passed on
from generation to generation.
Kwe’ swept arms wide as if embracing all
Nature, “here Spirit resides, we believe.
here for reflection and observation – 
meditate on interconnectedness.”
Kwe’ picked up his flute, resumed playing tunes –
owl and coyote hooted and howled then
other forest creatures added their songs
creating a symphony of diverse
voices in unison – inter connect.

    Carol, I really like the way Kwe' has the power to bring harmonious music throughout the land with the animals joining in the chorus. Quite a unique take on the picture. Wouldn't it be nice if mankind could create "a symphony of diverse voices in unison" and find our way toward peace. Best wishes in the contest! This has to be a winner. Love, Caroln
