Deer is still
Every sound a sign
A stick that snaps
Deer are running

 Wolf pauses in his step
Every scent is telling
A foe might be present
Wolf is on the move

 Trees are bending
Bows break and miss-shape
What was up is down
What was calm is disturbed

 Wind is blowing
Messages travel
Leaves swirl
Invisible motion

 Snake slithers in the grass
Silent and foreboding
Curled up under a rock
Ready to strike

 Earth seems to move
Shadows fool the ground
A stream takes new form
Everything changes

 Crow calls loudly
Gathering the murder
What do they hide
Following the motion

 Blue Jay sounds an alarm
Something is coming
What does he know
Does anyone hear

 Eagle looks down
Watches all things
Watches all things
Watches all things

Some ask what White Mocs on the Red Road means - A white Man's walk learning the Native American Cultural teachings..
To begin to know spirit through the teachings of the ancients. In a time of transition, one begins to look for answers about living that seem to be missing in life. It seems as if the fulfillment of the promise of the American dream is somehow incomplete. One begins to look for something to fill in the missing pieces. Noodin searched for that missing part and almost literally stumbled on the first people of this land. As he began to learn of their continued existence, they led him on an extraordinary path of understanding. These people who he did not even know still existed, continue to have the gifts of a beautiful culture that respects all things. The goal for Noodin then became to find those gifts.
