The intersection of earth and sky

The intersection of earth and sky

The intersection of earth and sky

Stars, leaves, snow and rain
gifted from the sky.

Fog, spring field-rocks, and bubbling brooks
rising from the earth.

And we in the middle,
creatures of earth and universe,
pulling down the white light
and standing grounded
bare feet in the soil.
Our hearts a swirl
of stardust wonder,
awe, dreams, everything possible
mixed and melded with
love, kindness, compassion
and gratefulness
with which only the mortal are blessed.

We are born innocent.
It is the wolf we choose to feed
who guides us either
to the gifts of the light
or gives us over to the pain of fear.

Feed the good wolf
he is Lupus , wolf of the stars
he is Canis, wolf of the woods
he is your fierce heart,
the power of earth and sky,
the power of love and wonder,
that inexhaustible energy
swirling all around you and inside you
as you stand in the intersection
of earth and sky.
