SPIRIT, FEATHER, AND BONE by Jeffrey Littrell

maple leaves spin down to the earth
like ghosts adrift on the wind
touched by the hand of the Medicine Man
the mystical tempest begins

flames flicker in response on the altar
The Great Spirit has come to dance
chanting and casting a circle of salt
sends destiny merging with chance

the blood of the stag is offered, bringing
the distant cry of a wolf, all alone
an alchemist and a shapeshifter
becomes spirit, feather, and bone

the power of good medicine conquers,
Evil is commanded to fall
The Great Spirit dwells deep within us
She opens her arms out to all
