Skis With Bears

Sierra Glow ~d nelson

Sierra Peak’s Glow ~d nelson

He would escape occupation
of non stop media
tapping into & googling
his mind & essential being.

wet journey there

wet journey there

He sought that non-local place
before lyrics,
before Rolling Stones, Howling Wolf, Muddy Waters;
before radio & rotary phones.

out of boundries

out of boundaries

Entering vast new spaces
where elements clearly rule,
welcoming all who dare
come to play there.

by in a blur

by in a blur

Initial release of knots
& stored energies went
swiftly down hills
towards physical relief.

seeing the signs

seeing the signs

Less frenzied revealed
ease in reading obvious signs
to slow, to glide, to appreciate
fresh air experienced
breathing in.

sunlight thru trees

sunlight thru trees

Looking at & seeing those gifts
of colors & shapes
that have been since
before human ancestors,
he smiles.

climbing higher

climbing higher

Striding & poling up
towards his higher aspiration
of inter-connectivity to what is
& has been since before
the beginning.

one of many mtns

one of many mtns

Trusting guidance from teachers,
inner wisdom & intuition
to chart a course
with no clear, guaranteed path.

Taking refuge in shelters
at each & every peak overcome
where nourishment & rest
revitalize his shining little light.

snow prints

snow prints

Tracks in the snow
transport his consciousness
to where there are no names,
no maps, no time;
just it;
this is it!

bear's stand-in

bear’s stand-in

His spirit joyfully skis
with bears who lived contentedly
in raw wilds of nature
& slept cozy in winter’s charm.
He asks that they
may awaken safely,
to harmoniously roam free, again.
May it be so for human beings
as well.
