The Shaman’s Horse

shaman image“I am a circle within in a circle/
with no beginning and never ending…”

Mantra say over and again,
Vibrating within; a meditation refrain.
Circle, sway, shuffle, dance:
Chant and drum drum into trance…
Shaman-like the Spirit moves
Hear the thu-thunder of ethereal hooves-
Flying free riding the Shaman’s Horse
Taking an unusual dream-like course
To the sound of the d-rum d-rum beat
Released from the body Travelling fleet
And fast and sure and knowing
Seeking answers and wisdom with power growing
Teachers and Guides and Allies heed the call
When the Shaman rides and journeys all
Respect given and respect shown in turn-
The tempo changes calling Come! Return!
Boom-boom boom-boom the Shaman heeds
The rhythmic sound of his trusty steed
And like a heart- beat in conscious sound
The Shaman’s Horse brings him safely to ground.

  3. Yes, I got the “shamanic drum beat” right away! You have it as the base beat all the way through ~ Great!

  4. This is quite interesting. It’s a warrior type narrative and it reminds me of some of our folklore.

    • 🙂 Yes – a Shaman is a warrior – of the spirit, and must always be on guard when he – or she – travels the ‘Other realm’/spirit realm.
      i was aiming for the rhythm to reflect that of a shamanic drum-beat…
