~~~
started sketching a self-portrait one day but quicky gave up. this is what i drew instead.
~~~


Wise woman of white buffalo
resides within my breast.
Unyielding to earthly demands,
she summons me to rest.

In medicine pouch she carries
symbols of healing, hope
herbs and plants, gemstones and berries
bound with sinewy rope.

Feather fixed behind her left ear
gift of hawk, red-shouldered.
She attunes senses, chases fear
to ash of my pain, now smoldered.

Strong healer, fair friend, daughter mine,
God released you in me,
breathed grace and turned water to wine.
Clay scales removed, I see.

Beautiful poem Dawn...and I find it

a different place while sketching..
