Autumn Magic poem 7~ A Song from Coyote Posted on November 23, 2017 A day of thanksgiving A history of the land A call from the wild… As I meditate upon The four directions Of the medicine wheel… My comrades and allies, Coyote surprised me with a story One that brought happy tears To my eyes… Coyote said, “I have known you longer Before you came to this Native song of life… I knew you as a child I smelled you in the weeds As you fell and rolled Down tall green grass as a laughing youth… I knew your favorite trees you expertly climbed I rested near the rocky hills where you dreamed Reflecting thin white crystals… I knew the places where you rode on a white horse The rugged trails you blazed through the large sage mountains That rolled with scented fennel to the sound of the sea… At night you heard us singing I called to you I scared you I woke you up with a screaming ascending yelp Remember? Sharing the mysteries of life… One-night years ago I walked right next to the car door of The man you would marry I sized him up… He remembers! Now the story is clear I have known you longer then you have known of me… I also sang this story to the visiting raccoons remembering you now as a wild friend I told them our story The nature of a lifelong song…” To all the wild things that know us When we walk in their fields Or on their hills! Thanks Coyote…

Welcome to Hudley Flipside’s “The Seminary Of Praying Mantis Publishing.” Praying mantis shows me her story of life, death, and rebirth. For me she is an image or symbol of the divine in all things. I watch the praying mantis in my garden and have taken her image as my logo. She is an amazing little creature, and I relate to her connection to nature. We are both wild and part of this strange world. She is a part of my mythology as I am part of hers.
