10 Companions (FF Retreat)

by Nick Andrea

On a planet gone astray
this month, on the first day,
ten companions, we set out
on a Hero’s Journey
to find and show the way,
bold, connected, and ordained….

With the sacred feminine
our roots grew long
flexible yet unshakeable,
we learned how to be strong.

With the Oracle we found out, just
how humility speaks
of mysteries and truths
beyond the mind’s reach.

And then came the trailblazer
silent and bold
challenging family attachments that
anyone, down, would hold.

An elf then there appeared
nimble and quick
creative and leaderly
he could do 1,000 things with just a stick.

The Golden Buddha sat peacefully
though tears we did witness
that carried a beautiful melody
of titanic, loving-kindness.

A navigator of waters
wild, broad, and deep
we had upon this vessel
that journeyed the soul’s seas.

A phoenix-man, resilient
brought us his gift
to provide all with nourishment
and powerfully uplift.

Then Jesus Christ returned, though,
as a Persian man
to show us all the way
of unconditional love, again.

A prophet there also was
in our midst, here,
a destined motivational speaker
to liberate souls from fear.

And a compassionate one
did bring up the rear
a father to all,
nobody was left behind, here.

To Mordor we went
land of darkness, unfurled
to conquer ourselves
and return to lead the world.

So, let us now go forth
and promise each other this:
from this moment forward, we will
uncompromisingly, follow our bliss.
