for Tyke

Stolen from family,
beaten into submission.
they robbed you of even hope.
Day after frustrating day,
it was not living ,taking all
of your strength just
to cope.

With pain and fear
they bent your will
and pushed you
to the brink of despair.
Spirit uncrushed one final rush
to freedom knowing death
was waiting there.

The greatest sorrow is knowing
your only release came
with life blood flowing
in that dirty street.


Your mighty heart slows



til with the final beat



your only freedom
DEATH.

( we will not forget what people have done to cause a gentle creature to feel this was her only option ) laura August 19/2004












Nic and Gypsy

metal bites ankle,


hooks gouging skin


cold and empty darkness


sadness creeps slowly in.



mothers trunk , family voices,


they're gone now two by two.


we're left all alone Aunty,


let me hold onto you .



echoes of our lost ones


heavy in this empty space.


a dream of open skies ,


some green grass , a loving place.



into the truck Gypsy ,


now we are the last two .


unsure first steps , a new world ,


don't let me lose sight of you !



freedom and choice , laying in the mud ,


blue sky stretching endlessly above.


oh Gypsy it's not a dream ,


we are surrounded by love .

For My Ancestors


grandmothers,


remind me every time


i wake to remember


all that is sacred



from the tiniest leaf


to the tallest of trees


from the little ant


to the elephant



they are all sacred



to remember


each and every blessing


and to always offer


my deepest gratitude



to each person who has


touched my life


and each life i touch


physically or in spirit



they are all sacred



to stand on mother earth


and become one



my ancestors behind me


my grandchildrens grandchildren


before me , i take my place


in this circle of life



they are all sacred



i stand


a child of the stars


the daughter of many



blessed in love and light


by the great mystery


who created me



all my relations


little crow woman

Tears of Love

It started with
a single tear ,
slowly falling ,
unleashing a torrent
following disbelief .
The spreading news
of Tina's passing
opening flood gates
of sorrow and grief.

Calmly and lovingly
she changed everyone
her spirit touched
in so many ways .
We thought she would
have years in paradise
not knowing her life
was counted in just days .

She was singing a joyous song
to her ancestors
of her time to join them above .
The dusty road home
to her heavenly keeper
washed clean by these tears of love .

Exploring at night

































In your eyes


we saw joy


fleeting happiness


overshadow pain



the new wonder


loving family and


humans that gave


freedom again.



In your eyes


soft moonlight


shadow danced


on persimmon tree



your sisters faces


joyous greetings,


trunk touches and


your friend Winkie.



In your eyes


sorrow filled family


loving faces


those now so dear



your heavenly keeper


called you softly


no more pain, little one,


your time is near.



In our eyes


your sweet face


pictures , memories,


tears still flow



all the wonders


you missed Tina


paradise , new shoes.......


it was time for you to go.

X-circus divas



we are the calves,


torn from our mothers


exploited and abused


by force and chain



we are the calves,


that lost families and


our lives,discovering


freedom once again



we are the calves,


in these adult bodies


knowing we are home now


we can run and play



we are the calves,


that found sanctuary.


gentle touches, remembering


the ones lost on the way.
