Serene, Beautiful 9.8.2008 - Poem by Margaret Alice

Ayahuasca made
Alan see demons,
sharp ears, hands
replaced by claws
with talons

Only Kate looked
serene, beautiful;
an aura of peace,
shining brightly
into the night

The shaman says
Kate’s spirit is strong,
something she does
reaches thousands
of people

God is blessing her
work and will bless
her all the days
of her life

Alan, Kate’s husband, recounted his experience with Ayahuasca
Kate Turkington “There’s More To Life Than Surface”
pp.259,272
