Shaman*

*A collaboration with Carol fromWritersDream9.Wordpress.com


Carol is a skilled poet who excels at crafting haikus, haibuns and tankas that read like a Japanese master penned them. She also creates short fiction, longer poems and haigas of breath-stealing breadth and beauty.

Come walk with us under the moon, up a mountain path into nature’s magic.


Shaman

Dandelion heads sway, let wishes fly.
Daisies drop petals, requests for help fall.
Grasses flatten spelling out messages.

Turning skyward to all my soulful friends,
Asking them how to bring healing to all.
Dandelion heads sway, let wishes fly.

A voice calls, “look within, where answers lie.”
Light blazes Inside, magic there to heal.
Daisies drop petals, requests for help fall.

Reaching for the Daisies hesitantly,
Knowing inside, the white petals will work.
Grasses flatten spelling out messages.

Pleas for help that I heed, the earth’s in need.
Some flaw, human-caused, destabilizes,
Causing the flora to cry out for aid.

Must rise to be the shaman that I am.
My heart is filled with many doubts and fears.
Pleas for help that I heed, the earth’s in need.

Quiet reigns, steals my breath–where are my friends?
In the buzzing of the bees I hear it–
Some flaw, human-caused, destabilizes–

My footsteps trample their way through the field.
My heart tuned to the voices of Mother–
Causing the flora to cry out for aid.

Whispers of my people’s pain interrupt,
The divine voice quiets–I turn to save,
Understanding how the solution’s made.

The clover and garlic call to me now.
Could this be one answer to our distress?
Whispers of my people’s pain interrupt.

I stand fast against the onslaught, purpose
In my poise, my hands held ready to heal.
The divine quiets–I turn to save.

In my home I shall mix the remedy–
Sacred processes make the cure so real–
Understanding how the solution’s made.
