    (For WindWalker)

    The Student stands on wobbly legs
    Too small his feet
    Too big his head

    Til enters the Teacher
    Who lifts the ears
    Who straightens the back
    Who calms the fears

    Who leads him to learning
    Lets him drink
    What he will
    Then stands back to watch
    As he races uphill

    He spends time in the valley
    Masters swimming upstream
    In darkness and daylight
    Til he reaches his dream

    Now he stands on the mountain
    Looking down from above
    Where he sees his first Student

    He approaches with love

    WindWalker:

    It was such a coincidence that I had just penned that piece upon waking in the morning, it had been floating around in my head all night.
    When I read your work, it just seemed a natural connection., so I sent it on. Thank you for your comments.

    Peace,
    JNubian
