Of Earth and Sky


Listen


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
