Passing Beyond

I’m going to watch you die…

but before I do

I will foretell your story

 

The story of the White Bird

The Great Mystery

and the Silver Seed

 

The White Bird carries

in its talons

the Silver Seed of all mankind

 

A seed that will allow you

to move past what you have been afraid

of for so long

 

When the White Bird

passes overhead

it will drop the Silver Seed

 

You must be dead

before the seed

touches the ground

 

Then, the White bird

will turn into

the legendary Hawk of Thunder

 

And carry you off

into the land

of the great Wakan Tanka

 

The decision to leave

being yours

and yours alone

 

Passing beyond

what time has frozen

—passing beyond what then has been

 

(Pine Ridge South Dakota: August, 2011)
