I've been running through the jungle. I've been running with the wolves
To get to you, to get to you
I've been down the darkest alleys. Saw the dark side of the moon
To get to you, to get to you
as the day took to night. I took my wolves out to the moon. to howl. to let their muscles + nerves sing out; the low sounds to slip quiet beneath the sinking belly of the sun. the high to rise with the rustle of black leaves on winters' trees. I took my snakes. to writhe free of another skin + let the silk of the early eve glow to glint gold on the rims of their wide collars. + my children. I took them out to dance in the light to their own joy. + what did I do. what was my part in the wild + reckless embrace. where did the awe take hold of my effort + reveal a curving bone of humility I was not using? this is how the world works. on the profound. in riots. spaced years apart. + tears apart. so that when we are a part of them we are torn. apart. a part. a whole. what I did? I remembered. I left my prayers of thanks on 1000 stars. for the tribe of all things. for the fathers in their fire + work. the mothers for the softness they lend to structure; receptive. with grace. for my sisters. brothers. there is not a human under the sky who wasn’t born of the white light there. + at a depth greater than any distance. we are one. using direction to keep from distraction. we are made. as the moon is. more full. meanwhile the moon colors with blood. as ours runs hot. or cold. opposition did not use to mean war. hate. instead. it was harmony. balance. the descent necessary for ascension. how have we bloodied the word freedom. and how can we wash it with truth? we are anchored by effort. ambition. rightness. meanwhile the soft ferns grow off of stones. meanwhile the sky aligns in some perfect script. meanwhile a chant is humming; a gift to what or whom is greatest. all join into the song. a hiss of a guardian snake. like a whip. like a breath. a wolf’s cry to unbed our own nerves. and the roar of a lion to join in the sea’s. another three years. another five. 100s. do not wait to make a change worth celebrating. do not to go another day after this great night, without waking. make of yourself a light. make of yourself a light.
poem for the moon + today’s teachings I was blessed to take in + for every day that we may be brighter. thank you @oneyogavictoria + @ryanleier
The magic number... Image 3
Slow shutter, shaky hand, lunacy... Late night lunacy and other ecliptic musings.
Ainda para ir dormir. Ela estava muito cheia para dormir. Sempre há uma comunicação clara entre a lua, o sol... e aqueles que conheço para ser da minha tribo... meu clã... minha mochila. Embora o espírito do lobo solitário é forte em mim, há aqueles que me vêem, como eu os vejo... o sol, a lua... na terra. Este foi o primeiro Eclipse com que me sentei. Esta é a primeira vez que tenho sido capaz de ver com os meus próprios olhos, a beleza da sua superfície. A lua é muito mais do que uma esfera que emite luz.
E sua pele, não é nenhuma superfície fosca de caráter. A superfície dela é uma história. Assim como toda a nossa pele é história... contada, e viveu. O espírito do lunático está maravilhosamente forte esta manhã. Eu ainda tenho que ler as muitas interpretações deste Eclipse lua cheia. O que eu sei é que há poder e beleza na experiência. Poder no sol. Poder na terra. Poder na sombra que a terra, e todos os seres vivos podem lançar sobre outros seres. Sombras revelam muita beleza, muita verdade.
O sol brilha no outro lado deste planeta azul, lançando uma sombra sobre a lua que inspirou esta noite inteira, sóbrio, derramamento de Lunacy beautif. Que todas as luas, luas, Lunas... estejam cheias. Que os sóis continuem a iluminar e a lançar sombras. Podemos ver a beleza e o valor do que a sombra revela. Onde há sombras, há sempre luz.

I've yet to go to sleep. She was too full for sleeping. Always, there is a clear communication between the moon, the sun... and those I know to be of my tribe... my clan... my pack. Though the spirit of the lone wolf is strong in me, there are those that see me, as I see them... under sun, under moon... on earth. This was the first eclipse that I sat with. This is the first time I have been able to see with my own eyes, the beauty of her surface. The moon is much more than a light emitting orb.
And her skin, is no matte surface void of character. Her surface is story. Just as all of our skin is story... told, and lived. The spirit of the lunatic is beautifully strong this morning. I have yet to read the many interpretations of this full moon eclipse. What I know is that there is power and beauty in the experience. Power in the sun. Power in the earth. Power in the shadow that the earth, and all living beings may cast upon other beings. Shadows reveal much beauty, much truth... there is light too in shadows.

The origin of this moon name dates back to the presence of Native American tribes, specifically related to the Pawnee Native American Tribe. This tribe is known to be one of the most honored in North America, named after the word pa’ni, translated to mean wolf. The traditions and customs of this tribe align with the so-called wolf spirit.
Legend has it that Tirawa, the Great Spirit, placed the wolf spirit in the sky in order to watch out for the evening star. This came along with the wolf’s animal brothers: Black Bear, Mountain Lion, and Wild-Cat. These entities were said to possess power in the sky, soon known as black star, yellow star, white star and red star. These beasts supposedly sent animals like themselves to live on earth and were responsible for many of the planet’s creations. Similarly, they were believed to be responsible for sending clouds, thunder, lightning, and wind.
The wolf spirit, said to be the guardian of and possessing ancient ties to the moon, was also believed to stand as a devoted servant of the sun. Even now, it’s widely regarded that a lone wolf sings his song to the moon, hence the name of the first moon of the year, occurring in the dead of winter.
Although the origin and legend of the wolf moon may be ancient, there still stands strong symbolism today surrounding this specific moon. The animal of a wolf is said to be strategic and communicative, possessing a specific rank in their packs. Because of these characteristics, a wolf moon is said to symbolize a time to look to community for creative solutions, inspiring individuals to communicate with those around them to overcome challenges. .. 🙏🏽 ᴱˣᴬᶜᵀᴸᵞ

Skywatchers in North America will get a celestial treat late Sunday (Jan. 20) and early Monday (Jan. 21), when the moon goes into eclipse and turns blood red. While the weather will be very cold for many in North America, astronomers say to bundle up and check out the sight now. That's because the next total eclipse won't happen until 2021, and North Americans will have to wait until 2022 for a blood moon to be visible from their location. Tonight's total lunar eclipse is occurring while the moon is near it's closest point to Earth for the month, which some call a "supermoon." Since January's full moon is also known as the Wolf Moon, that's led some to christen tonight's lunar event a Super Blood Wolf Moon... #WolfSpirit#Spirits#nativeamerican#bloodwolfmoon2019
