Sacred Circle

I hear the drumbeat rolling through the woods,
crossing the crystal clear stream,
its padded hoof beats moving closer,
promising sacred connection.

My distant cousins sending their song,
my heart responds and I feel it in my chest.
My feet desire to join in with the rest,
to circle with my brethren again.

The fire pushes back against the darkness,
silhouettes of shadow dance in unison.
O’ sacred dance, o’ sacred song, o’ sacred circle
join us once again in oneness.

I once fled the forest,
and betrayed my love,
denied my place at the circle,
lost step and stumbled.

I abandoned the forest path
and became lost on concrete lanes.
I took shelter in dead buildings
rather than beneath living trees.

I lost my sense of wonder,
I surrendered my senses.
I lost my taste for nature’s garden
and devoured poisons instead.

I return now seeking your healing balm.
I return now to my creator’s palm.
I rejoin the circle and take my place
once again with my sacred kin.

Hi Greyeagle. That was a wonderful insight to your return to nature. For many reasons we sometimes get sucked out to put it out of where we are most comfortable. Im glad that you are finding nature again as im sure this will make you very happy

Thanks for stopping by Doc! There are so many distractions in the world today, with many dangerous potentials. However, I believe the greatest danger to the world has been our disconnect with nature. Our culture has taken the position that nature is somewhere you go for a vacation or for a short hike. We don't see ourselves as part of nature. We see nature as something to be subdued and conquered or as a source of raw materials. I believe our participation in nature is as important as breathing. Thanks again my friend and I hope things are going well for you.
