A Naming Beneath the Cedar

A Naming
Beneath the Cedar

A stillness spreads
into the wind as it runs
through the Red Pines
along the river’s shore

a sweet smoke rises
between the Cedars
carrying their prayers
in traditional ways.

The ways of the spirit
an ancestrial song,
our connection with earth
spiritually beyond.

A name they know
in our language of soul

an intricacy of meanings
weaved into the dawn.
