“Kachina Cholla Medicine Healer” September 10, 2011

Filed under: Faerie Dust & Whimsy,Poems — Faerie Magic @ 5:21 pm

Yesterday, I had the fortune of running into (well not literally because that would not be such a fortunate event) a beautiful Cholla cactus on one of my faerie dust adventures.  My boyfriend, Don, and I were cruising the desert on our bikes, when Gabby, of the SDFDC, flew over to us saying, “Look, look” .. we noticed one of the Cholla standing in a precarious position.  It looked almost as if he had been dancing and when we had looked, he had stopped in his tracks.  Don and I giggled thinking he looked like he was doing a medicine healing on some of the other plants.  The Faeries and ourselves took a quick photo and we called this the “Kachina Cholla Medicine Healer” then went along our way so as not to interrupt his ceremony.

He dances lithely in the desert

turning and spinning

and running about

he picks the stones and flowers

up off the ground

and presents them to

the other trees

that need healing

piece by piece.

Although his spines are

sharp and pointy

his medicine is like

liquid light.

He is friends with the sky

and speaks to the clouds

and asks for rain

when its allowed.

His right hand heals

his left hand make rhythm

together the sound and the light

bring the desert healing

each night.
