Feather and Wedding

The lodge looked West at the edge of a canyon
A midnight moon lit the land
Fifty feet down there lay a feather
King of the Sky left in the sand

I climbed down to sage and scrub oak,
Found many feathers there blood stained
Eagle would return to heal and feed
In the brush he hid his pain

Suddenly he appeared beside me
As tall as any human
Looked at me with his yellow-rimmed eye
He turned into a shaman

Eagle-Shaman set me on his back
Southward, Shaman-Eagle flew
He set me at his hogan’s door, then
Into the smoke hole he withdrew

Married we shall be, he told me
And showed me my secret name
As he drew breath from his sacred pipe
I sat down to do the same

And soon we left our bodies
Our souls mingled toward the sun
As we rose above the fire
The two of us became one.
