The Path

time spent dreaming
visions from the outside
looking in, contemplating,
listening, understanding
the trees are my brothers
the ocean my mother
sweet nectar of the gods
shows me the way
a new path, untrodden
leading to deep places
far below the Earth
starlight leads the way
like burning embers
kissing the soles of my feet
the wolf calls me,
he knows me,
knows my name
suspended here
in this deep world
time waits for me
but I move forward
life and death
holding my hands
telling me their secrets
dark words breathing
writing their tale on my heart
I exist here, in this place
I’m always here
