Eagle sits on my shoulder.

Panther stalks in my shadow.

Power animal nudges my heart,

Pushes me this way and that,

Sees through my eyes, and

Watches as I am left with no-

Thing to do but move as move-

Ment moves. I find nothing

To fear, nothing to change.

I move as fish move.

I touch the pulse of animal

Heart, breathe the mystery

Of light and air, and come

To know this place of silence

In which, once and for all,

I AM. Wolves walk at my

Heels, and I walk at theirs.
