Wisdom Initiation



I saw the eyes of an eagle starting back at me

I saw the eyes of a reindeer gazing into mine

I saw the eyes of my ancestors

More and more of them came

The animals and people of my land

Inviting me into their eyes

They showed me their stories

They showed me their age

They showed me their wisdom

Faster and fast their eyes flashed before mine

Until their eyes became one

And it was no longer something I was looking at

But something I was looking through




Words by me
