Artist's Description

“Knee deep…
in the mud I squat.

Gaze into my silver mirror
and I will teach you to scry
Psyche and
both given and sought.

Feeding on each airy thought
as about your head they fly…
Leap and Glide!
Faith and Wisdom will abide.

We all begin helpless and small.
Soon enough we grow, adapt, transform
to handle Life’s call…

Awareness is the tail that
grounds and guides,
Until all four legs
Keep you steady.
Lift you over.
Help you take it all in stride.

Leap and glide!
Faith and Wisdom will abide.

I am no pebble-skinned traveler,
dispensing my Dreams,
and Fortunes
by the road.

I leave that for my cousins
Who also follow the
Moon’s bright code!

Breathe in Life through your very skin…
Remember all your kith and kin….

Leap and Glide,
I’ll show you how.”

Who Sings Now?

Each Who Sings Now? poem is inspired by a Nature Teacher; stone, plant, star, animal, etc. that is a Wisdom keeper. Many people enjoy trying to guess which Teacher inspired each poem. Many times, the guesses of readers has lead me to write about a new Teacher, usually one that is a Balancing energy for the one currently featured. This game has been a wonderful way to keep Inspiration and the thirst for Knowledge flowing. The full discussion on each Singing Teacher can always be found in my Writing section under the same title, so no peeking! Can you guess who swallows the Moon, and inspires us in Dreams?
