Let us praise the raven and the rain.
Let us praise the singer and the song.
Let us praise the Cloud Spirit,
leading us to other roads
when our path is hedged and blocked
by creatures sinister and sleek.
Let us praise the river stones
whose dignity remains intact,
despite the ravages of floods and drought.
Let us praise all things great and small,
for the hundred-thousand ways
our days are measured out.

Cache la Poudre River, Fort Collins, Colorado
Even in autumn
raven follows the river
as far as the sea.

willing to teach the humble
wisdom’s hidden ways
