Calling Of The FLame

Elders of the spirit

heed the call to stand-

The seventh generation has awoke,

ready to receive the torch, we must now pass.

Mothers, Grandmothers, wise lone sojourners…

come and lend the life-earned understanding

of holding close in unity,

the bond of family.

Fathers, Grandfathers, the wise ole’ philosophers…

bring the guidance

of the spiritual warrior, the provider, protector.

Lay your wisdom, with tobacco down,

prayers up,

at the sacred fire…

The day we’ve waited for has come.

They await,

able to take up the banner,

to march on-

Sent forth in fostered unity,

with the light of love…
