New Beginnings by Tammo Geertsema

Do not fret niinimoshenh 
Take my hand 
The forest is never 
As dense as it seems 

Accept my hand 
Let’s leave the backward path 
and walk toward that sacred place 
where Earth and Sky meet 

Our Mother and our Father 
Never judge or blame or hold grudges 
They Dance In A Different Light 
The warm light of New Beginnings. 

Take my hand...
