Chief

In this life, love is my temple
the strange, the strong, the free
souls entwine, in the eye of the trinity

Filling our basket with five babies
in a world
where the ocean moves slow

This is the one we share in:
One life, one love, I and I
these feet that walk above the sea

I vow to take this hand
a promise beyond the end
Death will do nothing part

I place a mala in your hair
petals at your feet, durdum in hand
With you in this place, our tribe, I love

While the rest of the world sleeps
the father of my children
is still, the man of my dreams


















*mala-spiritual beads used for chanting/reciting mantras
*durdum-drum used in prayer/spiritual sound
