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

( 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


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.



Tina loves Tennessee river bamboo

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.
