Like powerful cottonwood bending in stiff North breeze,
Steadfastly standing through cold Winter freeze,
I am here; I am present: Warrior am I.
I am present: Warrior am I.
Like granite earth lying beneath warm Spring streams,
Lovingly embracing our flow South with ease,
I pay attention; I seek heartfelt meaning: Healer am I.
I pay attention: Healer am I.
Like East desert sun on hot Summer days,
Clearly shining light as we walk together on our way,
I look for truth without blame or judgment: Visionary am I.
I look for truth: Visionary am I.
Like raindrops silently sitting on West-facing tree leaves,
Trusting Fall fate, knowing nature’s wisdom always succeeds,
I am open to possibilities without real attachment; Teacher am I.
I am open to possibilities; Teacher am I.
