Of all the parts of the collage, this is my favorite part. I had so much fun drawing this tiger–this part of the collage–that I spent hours upon hours perfecting it. This again shows my love of tigers.
Another poem from when I had my “creativity juices” flowing.
Glow and Show:
Shine soft light that you are,
Light the world with your radiance, your hope your beauty,
Show your light,
Show your truth,
Show your beauty,
Show the truth—and light the world with it.
A 2007 nature poem.
Beauty of Land and Sky:
Skies open up to let out the new day,
Sun shines down with golden rays,
A clear blue sky is shown today,
Winds ruffle the trees,
The air sweet as orange blossoms,
The trees with perfect brown trunks and green green leaves,
The ground covered in green grass soft to bare feet,
I look around me and see beauty throughout the land and in the sky,
And wonder how can this be—this beauty of land and sky?
From several years ago, before I got my wolf-arrow-inner strength tattoo. I’ve always loved wolves. I think they’re gorgeous creatures and they’re also one of my animal totems.
I howl at the moon—white light streaming down to illuminate me,
Black eyes glow golden in the white light,
Gray fur glistens silver—sparkles like many diamonds,
Fierce eyes are laid upon you—a warrior’s eyes,
Arrayed in armor of gray fur glistening silver,
I stand before you,
I howl to you,
I call to the moon,
To have her show me the way,
The warrior’s way—fierce, proud, brave, protector of all,
I come to you in your dreams—my howl driving away the evil spirits,
So that beauty once again shows herself to all,
Her light healing,
And then giving way to night once again,
And so I howl at the moon once again,
My black eyes glowing golden.
