Totems in Winter
by Phronesus Disegno
Age Group: Adult
So here I am in Winter months
With weather getting cold;
I chatted with my Totems today,
And oh, what a sight to behold!
The red-tailed hawk and hummingbird
I think might go on strike
Unless I give them birdie food
The kind I know they like;
The beaver's disappointed 'cause
He chipped a tooth on ice
Until his tooth grows fully back
His wood designs aren't that nice.
The dragonfly has come inside,
Refuses to go out!
I go outside to face the cold,
And it always makes him pout.
The horsie doesn't mind so much
He runs where spirit goes
And wolfy wolf finds time to play
With snow on top his nose.
And dearest stag just looks at me
And shivers once or twice
But never leaves my side although
A blanket might be nice.
And snakeypoo remains above
A place of his own choosing
For warmth he coils on my head
Which HE finds QUITE amusing...
But poochie dog has all the fun
With all his friendly charms,
He stays with me through thick and thin
And cuddles in my arms.
I know I make it sound as though
They're a bunch of lively pets,
But they've protected me so well
From the worst of spiritual threats.
A secret between them and me,
Let an enemy's power wield!
No evil person on this Earth
Has ever penetrated our shield.
But now we're in a time of peace,
As peaceful as a dove.
We play together all the time,
It's how we share our love.
And so another Winter's here
A time for us to explore,
We'll stay together through it all
As we've always done before.
