the deer

the other day i had a dream



that sent me shuffling into the wilderness of my spirituality 


i went in
with the warmth of my thoughts 


and the mystery
of its purpose 




and then

there he was 



what i had been looking for!

he was waiting for me



my spirit guide 



MY SPIRIT ANIMAL 




bambi



grown up bambi

manbi?



"follow me"
he said




OF COURSE I FOLLOWED

like a moth to a flame

"Okay" he said
"two things"


"First, just so you know, this is a dream. we're gonna fly later.

Second, i have to show you something.
kay lets go"


majestic.






"BAMBI" i said
"What does this MEAN?"



"Who AM i?"


"What do i have to GAIN from this, bambi??" 




"What?"

"What? what nothing. you're overreacting. We're almost there - this isn't the flying part yet"




majestic. 










it was the eden of my subconscious 
there, 
all of it
all for the taking 

leaves and leaves and leaves

beautiful leaves 



was this it??

was my spiritual journey all for this?? 
this beautiful leaf? 

my spirit called
i knew what to do

i knew now what i was born to do 
what i was created for 



"paint it" 
bambi said
"paint it,"

"WITH YOUR HANDS"






YES
YES, BAMBI

I PAINTED


I PAINTED WITH ALL MY MIGHT AND POWER 




it was too much

i felt my soul swelling inside of me 


it was forming! 



and there it was.



the leaf.
the dream leaf


"i've done it, bambi!
tell me!
tell me what this means!" 



"It means!"







"Now you can draw that leaf"


"WAKE UP!"



and i did.






here's that leaf
