Walking on the Winds of Morning


Artist is Christopher Walker, of Vancouver Island
This fellow looks exactly like my Pup, peeking around the corner of the Common Loaf Bake Shop in Tofino, where he and I spent so many happy years.



Traveler walks
on the winds of morning,
gentled by the soft mist,
attuned to the music
of the spheres.

Tiny birds alight
on her shoulders,
then lift off, twittering,
to follow her passage,
branch to branch,
through the sleepy forest.

She is Sky-Woman.
Though her feet are planted
on the earth,
her eyes never leave
the sky.

There are footsteps
softly padding along
behind her.
She does not turn
to see who comes.
She knows.

He is invisible,
but she knows those perked ears,
that arching tail,
that long black snout.

Walking on the winds of the morning,
their two spirits touch
through the veil of mist.
Their two hearts
are never
apart.

  1. You are right HE is there. This is so tender and so filled with love for Pup and the goodness in this world. Excellent shamanic write. Maybe I should say Rite.

  14. Sherry, this makes me sad. I miss my Adi very much. I know the lady in this poem will have a joyful reunion with her friend. Adi and I will too, I believe that dogs do go to Heaven. I was shown in the Bible where it say.
    Adi was a very good dog (link)\..
