Quantum

Quantum



Of Creator I am

One with all that is

A tear on a journey earthward

Born of a Cloud Peoples pain



I feel Earth Mothers agony

Her keepers are walking away

Questing for gold

Ignoring a trust



I am the tear

Forming pools

Streams and rivers

Filling oceans



I honor Earth Mother

Cleansing her face

Refreshing her spirit

Nourishing her children



From cheek to pool

Stream to… Continue

Quotes - The sun, the darkness, the winds are all listening...



"I cannot think that we are useless or God would not have created us. There is one God looking down on us all. We are all the children of one God. The sun, the darkness, the winds are all listening to what we have to say." ~Geronimo





Sassafras's note: It appears that something got lost in the translation of what Geronimo believed and how he was perceived and reacted to. Perhaps as he… Continue

The Wolf







A Native American grandfather was talking to his grandson about how he felt.



He said, "I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart.

One wolf is the vengeful, angry, violent one. The other wolf is the loving, compassionate one."



The grandson asked him, "Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?"



The grandfather answered: "The one I feed."
