Master of tunnels
in a grey velvet coat;
in the shadowy doorway
to the Underworld.
His quiet Wisdom oft o'er shadowed
by the hum of bee and bird.
This Teacher's song
must be felt rather than heard...
"Ignore your eyes,
let all sounds fade away,
feel each vibration and trust!
Ground yourself and turn Inward.
I will guide you towards your goal
through the tunnels
of my subterranean maze,
and the deepest caverns of your soul.
Four hours at rest
Four on patrol;
My restless hands
digging through the soil
revealing the hidden treasures therein.
Wisdom from the Stone People,
sagacious roots of Plant and Tree,
and all the mysterious Teachers
found beneath our Mother's fertile skin.
Look beneath the surface.
Though it may seem
that all around you
is a matter of either dark or light,
don't go making mountains out of my humble home,
for there are many shades of grey
between black and white.
I will teach you how
to get the most
out of every precious breath;
How to navigate
the narrowest of opportunities
without getting stuck,
and how to paralyze your prey
with just one bite,
filling your larder pragmatically
against winter's grueling rite."
