Poem of the Month

Fay Canyon Mandala

A map of wild footprints:

the deer people

show me the way.

In the center:

upright totem

reaching toward father sky.

In the first ring:

four stones

grounding to mother earth.

In the second ring:

eight twigs

branching like living antlers.

In the third ring:

circle drawn in red dirt

encompassing the one within all.

Beyond suffering!
