Each evening at Oracle 2022, our leaders gathering held in Potosi, Missouri, we gathered around “Grandfather Fire” to offer gifts of poetry, story, drumming, movement, and song. The following was offered by Illuman of the Ozarks Convener Jack Nobles.
I am made of Stardust;
of Winds and Woods!
I arrive Wild and Wooly, with Wildflowers!
I collect Words that Wound!
I am part grief and part hope-
And all Love.
~Jack Nobles – Illuman Oracle 2022
