The Benevolent Bear

So the legend goes
That deep within the ancient forest
Just beyond the bend,
where the river runs high
And the wind wisps
through the emerald canopy
A path widens as it arrives
upon a place,
A valley full of sun
and whispers of forever secrets.
There, the heart of the Universe resides
Great teacher, benevolent bear,
gatherer up of treasures,
The knowing one
who goes by the name of Cirrus.
He guides us to the way beyond –
Through the harvest
that reveals and enlightens
And frees us from within as we roam
Freely and enchanted,
curious and sublime
Toward a more blissful and beautiful world.
