"...the voice of the Great Spirit is heard in the twittering of birds, the rippling of mighty waters, and the sweet breathing of flowers. If this is Paganism, then at present, at least, I am a Pagan."
 
—Gertrude Simmons Bonnin (1876 - 1938), Dakota Sioux

Spirit of The Trees by Wendie Busig-Kohn / "The Blush of Beauty" by Rose Marie Raccioppi

Wbk spirit of trees hi res
 The Blush of Beauty

Trees to flourish, 'tis bounty's call
The knowing grace of Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall
Leaves of green, red, orange, crimson and gold
Such is the palette of grace to behold
Colors to don trees in such rapturous array
Alight flutter free to mark a season's day
The blush of beauty in colors bright
Blessed be all by the Creator's light.

"Winter Playmates" by Tracie Koziura

Winter-playmates-rebelwolf_

" Of all the animals

the horse is the best friend of the Indian,

for without it he could not go on long journeys.

A horse is the Indian’s most valuable piece of property.

If an Indian wishes to gain something,

he promises his horse

that if the horse will help him

he will paint it with native dye,

that all may see that help has come to him

through the aid of his horse."


—Brave Buffalo (late 19th century),

Teton Sioux medicine man

For REBEL WOLF! from WBK

TRACIE KOZIURA PHOTO

Rebel Wolf

Their eyes

whether wolves or superstars,

searing images leap from the page

into our hearts

An artist, a Poet, a Leader without peer

Rebel Wolf leads the pack

a friend so very dear.

 

She is witty, courageous, and trusting

above all

she is there when you need her

always responding to your call

to help

to champion

her artist peers

a woman so vital and loving, so dear.

 

I remember so well

the early days of our creative jam

when "going around the mountain" was a slogan we canned

for UK vs US communication faux pas'

All that time, I was truly and always in awe.

 

Friends come into our lives for a reason,

many leave without one too,

but I cannot even begin to imagine,

my life without you!

 

In hospital now, I can feel your fear

I want to be there

to comfort you Tracie dear

 My eyes are welled with tears of concern

I simply cannot wait for the day you will return

to all of us who know and love you much

We miss you, we love you,

Thanks for that special touch

you have imparted to each of us

along the way

Tracie, this is the best way I know how to pray

You live in my heart...every single passing day.
