Shamanic Drumming


You see,
what the alien
overlooks

is the lion
by the brook,
tiger in tree,

lily under toe.


we're a tribe
tied to earth
and though

new to Gaia
have friends

loyal to our ends
who'll leap to our defence
if and when duty calls

Only a tribe tied to the Earth can have such friends, more loyal than the friends got through Gaia! This poem evokes memories of heathen practises and age old mores! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
