The shaman’s spirit
abroad, deep in winter’s woods;
speaks in runic tongues

Poem: ‘Heed’

Florescent green banners snaking
in the blue;
Polaris over my head,
such beacons of the kingdom
drawing like a magnet,
beckoning closer to ice smothered peaks
of estranged lands;
the incessant drum of the shaman,
ancestors screaming from my heart,
imploring me: “Remember this.”
