Native American’s Vision Quest

Vision quest

Vision quest

Indian boy seeks

Supreme voice on vision quest

Clarifies being

 

Clarifies being

Adult emerges from child

Fuses with nature

 

Fuses with nature

Spirits enter his body

He understands place

 

He understands place

Elders help him decipher

Visions seen on quest

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    I used to be fascinated by this rite of passage in movies. I only learned about a spirit/vision quest for enlightenment or healing at any age recently. Either way, it’s a profound experience. Have always loved the idea of totem animals which you bring out in your cascade.
