tracking tones flowing sweet
rich & deep, wooden flute plays
music floating grey mystic air
vast field hard crunching snow
each step crisp crackles leading
me forward, journey boundless
hidden face, wise gatekeeper
"what is it you are seeking"
I reply " gateway to understanding"
my moccasins are worn & weary
his reply "over the mountain is
a field of daisies & juniper trees"
take me to the place of whispering
waters, I heard it has a message
of hope/ peace that I must hear
"Your message is blowing in seeds
of a dream..from a sapling will grow
a mighty tree, with strong roots"
" a lush green crown will offer you
rest but, first walk across hot embers
it will strengthen your heart & soul"
my soles will burn from carrying a
heavy heart in this journey of life
I need to lighten my knapsack
"your heart is heavy as you love
deep like the roots under my feet
scars embedded in your rich bark"
"carved within your trunk names
of those who came and went
as you wept in winter's silence"
"the world is full of those with
weak roots and hollow trunks
they will die of their own decay"
"their dreams will vanish in mist
but, those of true dreamers will live
on, for they thirst for the quest"
opening my eyes a clear vision
a land filled with rich opportunity
under winter's snowy landscape
Spring will arise with new life...

Author's note: This was inspired by
a dream I had last night..I've been
sick for a few days and in my fever
had a vision I am honoring it with
Peace and light...
