Be My Shaman
Author: Pondering Red


Be my shaman-
my mystical magical
dream weaver.
Interpret my dreams,
consious and beyond that realm.
Show me how to read
my own dreaming
Initiate me
into the ancient knowledge
that your ancestors posess,
so that
I can hear the bowl sing,
so that I can gracefully
walk this earth,
bend my body,
clear my space
of clutter-
my mind
of fearful thought.

Be my shaman-
So that I can teach others-
So I can find my luminosity
unveil the secret.
I watch you-
your gestures-
the mudras
your hands create-
the flow of your elegance-
your proud stature-
the rapture of your dance...
I want to know
how to join
you in this
magical passage....
Be my shaman
teach me
how to take me there...

Pondering Red

How are you?
I have read all of your poems that are here.
A very unique and complex form of writing.
Had to jump out of my skin and stand back to read your lines. Because they way I write is so different from yours. For me it was the best way to grasp the words. If I may - there is a book called Love is a dog from hell by Charles Bukowski. 1974-1977 Your writing tells me you would enjoy this book. Thank you for the food
[ enjoyment ] for thought. Rick Ryckman
