The Circle - Native Visions

~ To twine a vision of spirit and soul From bursting embers to blackened coal I search with elders through chanting cries Where pale moonlight adorns our eyes In strength and pride we rise above To greet the gift of eternal love Beyond the flesh immersed in light I wake in knowledge of endless sight A place where amber visions reign In lightening speed across the plains I reach the ledge where colors glow Of endless fields to reap and sow I pause in moments to gather breath Of life eternal untouched by death Through rising smoke and sacred song nevermore shall my spirit long ~
