"Stones and Mountains"

 

I came to earth
without my memories,
invisible
from somewhere beyond time,
my baggage would catch up
to me later
‘though I’d always thought
that it was circumstance,
a simple coincidence
forgotten to me
but suspected
in glimpses and moments
that I can’t explain
     nor explain away
           explain away
I sense the spirits
all around me
fanning my face 
with wings of eagles,
crystals aglow
in the dream catcher
and I try to move
my stones and mountains
      stones and mountains
In a sweatlodge
darkened with animal skins,
rocks radiating
grandfather-mother wisdom of the ages
ancient granite, near molten,
storm electric, on the surface
sparking, they’re holographic!
somehow talking
Sweat pouring down
forehead on the ground,
deliberate rhythm
little waterdrum’s around,
prepares and transforms
     heart beat the only sound
        heart beat the only sound
I sense the spirits
all around me
fanning my face
with wings of dragonflies,
a crystal in a dream
catcher hangin’
as I start to move
my stones and mountains
      stones and mountains

Splash of holy water,
a yell from deep within,
released from regrets,
those traces of where we’ve been, 
           where we’ve been 
           
Purify me....purifies me
Purify me....purifies me,
I came to earth
without my memories,
invisible
from somewhere beyond time,
my baggage
would catch up to me later,
mysterious ways
of the Creator,
mysterious ways
of the Creator,
mysterious ways
