    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

    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?

    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...

    Spiritual Evolution

    I have been a Pagan all my life, though I only realized it about 12 years ago when I joined a group in Canterbury and became a Practitioner of Natural Magic. Last year I started to become aware that my 'path' was going towards the Druidic belief system and felt that I was being...

    Ponderance Of The Fall

    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...

    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...

    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...
