(A Re-imagining of the ancient teachings of what it is to be a warrior.)

young warrior

bellow your heart

illuminate your spirit

touching stars

making earth tremble


student warrior

find your spirit song

let it guide you

as cleansing thunders do

rippling within


beckoning songbirds

of dawn through dusk

lonely warrior

seek your companions

find your mate

the ones who heal

challenges illusions

exposes weakness

tests notions of trust

earn theirs

warrior men


serve family

all our relations

mentor solutions


become peace

you seek

elder warriors



rise above

lay burdens down

leave weapons down

become grace

always desired

Artist Vasil Woodland / aka Vasyl Mushyk

Ukrainian Artist, Vasyl Woodland has given me permission to pair his art with my poetry and writings on my new website. I hope you enjoy his work and are drawn to support him and his people however you can in your prayers.

Vasil studied under Norval Morrisseu. Norval Morrisseau CM RCA, also known as Copper Thunderbird, was an Indigenous Canadian artist from the Bingwi Neyaashi Anishinaabek First Nation. He is widely regarded as the grandfather of contemporary Indigenous art in Canada.
