Of Earth and Sky


Smell the pungent juniper

Feel the gentle power of beauty

Ancient Black Rock hunches on the distant horizon

A dark cloud above means rain will soon be upon us

The awesome monolith at your feet is Tse Na'ashjee'ii - Spider Rock

Holy Spider Woman taught the People how to weave

There is purity and strength here

And places sacred to the People

Places strong in the oneness 

of earth and sky and all things
I am indeed it's child....absolutely I am earth's child
Navajo Song of the Earth
