Foreverís Bequest

I see you, Oh Great One

in the dusky shadowed eye
of the Indianís ghost,

in the tread of the white
wolfís footsteps,

through the branches of white birch
on a cold winterís morning,

on the slender ripples of the
blue lakeís waters.

I see the reflections of you
in those waters,

in the gray cloud-covered
mountainís peak,

on the mountainís ledge
in the bare nest of the eagleís home,

I see you.

Oh Great One,

your spirit is in the horse wild,

in the color of the mallow flower,

in the spark of the red-gold fire,

in the whispers of the wind.

I beseech thee,
Oh Great One,

that when I have to leave,
there will be a shadowed semblance of

me still here to be found.

In the life-breath of a new
foalís birth,

in the spark of the fireís warmth,

in the sweet smell of a meadowís flower,

a sigh in the windís whisper.

Perhaps, in the sunís shine
and radiance, to be shared

with moonís dark coolness.

So that I might still be a
quiet trace of life to be found

by the searchers.

Pepper, Denise & Hoot - the only place I like to read CAPS is when I hear the applauding... thank you ladies, for your read, and comments. I find this quite peaceful, I hope you did too.
