INIPI – TO LIVE

it is here

in the domed lodge

that mental concerns

be cleansed of negative blockages.

 

there is complete silence

during the construction

to the spirit world …

 

the sun, the source of all life

is all about the light.

 

you weren’t the only one.

other poets gathered

to be a part of the ceremony.

 

it was all about gratitude

and following the etiquette

while being together.

 

a purification and healing,

and yet a respect to tradition

of each poet to the seven stones.

 

this is where it is known

that warriors fight

as a last resort,

but sacrifice first.

 

it’s no wonder indian heritage

has a connection

with the poets.

they sacrifice first –

then come to write.
