For Blair Powell

November 2006

by Timothy Mason

Walking Hawk walks no more

for the other day he took wing

and soared

finding secret places

that spirits know

Walking Hawk took wing

and soared!

Then from the four directions,

each corner of the land

his friends took pause

to pray,

to praise,

to understand

A new beginning

for this kind and gentle warrior

who walked with us,

so that we could keep up,

encouraging us, always,

to begin to heal


Now Walking Hawk walks no more

the other day he took wing

he now soars

above enchanted lands

where another tree takes root.

The spirit world grows stronger still

Yet we silly mortals retain a certain CALM


to begin to heal

each time the hawk

takes sky

Hoka Hey

Hold fast my brother, there is more

Hoka Hey
