    Bathed In the Beat of Feral Drums

    The pounding, pounding hands beginning to pain right in the knuckles. A drum skin, stretched taught, sings proud steady songs in the night. The only other percussion is the crackle of pine fire. Hissing,spitting, little bursts of chemical energy. I close my eyes...

    Shaman Of The Wall

    I am shaman, and much more, I must gather all to war. This is my dictated fate, eternally I guard the gate. My ancestors, filling me, with the things that I must see. This could be the final stand, we must all defend the land. Perhaps I must fight alone, I already...

    Struggle Of The Shaman Path

    My feet tingle with energy, Harmony spreading up through the earth, A confusing cosmic high. I am my own drug. Battle rages inside and out And a serpent gnaws on my toes. Eyes open even when closed. All too much, must fly, Swim, gallop, jump, and...

    Cave Delay

    Can’t even go to the caves! I was supposed to today, But there are torrential rains, Now I must suffer more pain. They do not want me to go And see the things I must be shown, So I bite and fight and grow, Must learn to enjoy the show. Close my sight and shut my...

    Experiencing My Own Truth

    I was a child prodigy in paying attention.  I could be extremely focus or allow myself to drift away into the abyss of nothingness, and I was happy as a child. As I grew up I was told I was great with computers and that would be a good choice for me.  I felt sort of stale.. not...

    So As Not to Divulge Too Much

    Many times when one is in the line of shamanistic practice, there are healing rituals/ceremonies that must be performed to help heal another and onesself.  These healing sessions have been instrumental in teaching me more about the path I walk.  I wish I could share...

    Odd Communion

    It is hard to focus. I delve so far into my own mind it is like I see through different eyes. I am called, pulled somewhere. Where does my heart lead me and can she hear me? I scream like a beacon across the very universe. When will she hear me and heed my call? Is the wolf...

    Shaman

    I have come to realize that my calling is towards shamanism. I feel that I need to get to the Amazon a.s.a.p. I would love to apprentice. Shamans, in western culture, could be diagnosed with schizophrenia?

    Fraying Threads

    The threads in the tapestry fray. edges blur, undefined. Returning to the beginning. that empty nothingness. The bane of all. It has already begun to consume us. Barely held at bay, it approaches, a gibbering mass of pure consumption. Life itself hangs in the balance. Good and...

    Many Ways To Walk Out Of One's Head

    I had no thought. I was not in my verbal brain. My perception…. oh, I can’t begin to describe it, or remember it. All I know is that I was being, and in being, I was freed to do things that I can’t do. Or so I am told. It was so blissful. I didn’t...

    Stone Dreams

    I hate it when I lose my dreams, forgetting some important things. Of realms I do lie between, but what do all the tidings mean? Battle looms over us all, who can hear my howling call? Alone I do survey the wall, it must stand and never fall. Do I see what happens now, or do...
