Written for:  Carpe Diem #1507, Folk Music of the Faroe Islands
We will visit the Faroe Islands and one of their renown musicians is Eivor Palsdottir. I think we have had one of her songs earlier in our rich history. I think it was in a CD Special written by our Hamish Managua Gunn about Shaman Haiku, a kind of haiku inspired on the ancient rituals of the shaman. A nice CD Special to read again with a lot of wonderful “shaman”-haiku.

sound of the earth
an eagle points the path of the shaman
finally free

Here is my attempt:

haunting sounds of shaman
music along the path 
follow the song bird

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.
