Images of Oracle

In the beginning
The Cactus Clan
Men's Group with Nash
Reassemblying the Prayer Sticks
Prayer Corner
Desert Spirits
Life In Death And Death In Life:
Thoughts on a tree trunk

Open mouth, hollow space, ready to house a nesting bird or wild life.
Impervious to howling winds
maintaining balance
on a steep sioop
Scaling bark, dinosaur skin
joined by protective spirit.

A cry in the wilderness
against a deep blue sky.
A reminder that the new merges with the old.
No lost spirit; rather
a form recreating
immortal splendor.
