Rites Of Passage

lllllllllllllllllllll I haste not I fear not in harmonious cries, I plead where flight has called this mighty warrior red paint upon my cheek O cleansing smoke of wild grass high of resin and sacred bead a vision has taken this warrior's cry anon, to capture a dream I crawl through gates to reach the ledge where spirit and smoke arise and pluck the painted Northern Flora and gaze through Savanna's eyes ^^^^^^^

    an extraordinary write Rick .. I especially like the second verse .. deep and intense from the spirit being glowing .. and thankxxx for my win in Sijo .. it meant so much to be honored by u luv ... am on slow mend since my near death crisis .. God must still have a purpose for me to fulfill and your words inspire me as well my friend ..

    I can see the mighty warrior rising above the ephemeral to capture his dream ,no fear,no haste. Real good taste .... Loved the presentation .... Subtle and impactful.... Enjoyed reading....
